Story:

Big River is a musical that retells the wonderful, family adventures of Huck Finn and the slave Jim, as they ride the Mississippi! The music has an infectious country flair that lends itself beautifully to this classic story.  With Mark Twain's crazy cast of characters and Roger Miller's music, Big River is the perfect family musical. It has lots of laughs, and great songs.
