"The Adventures of Tom & Huck" Performance @ Your Library

The Fairbanks Branch Library is pleased to announce that Express Theatre will present a performance of "The Adventures of Tom & Huck" in the library's meeting room on Wednesday, July 6, at 3pm.  In this musical adaptation of Mark Twain's novels about boyhood friends, it would seem that some things never change.  Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn are always trying to get around the rules.  After all, no self-respecting kid can pass up a good adventure.  Follow these rascals and their friends--and foes--as they whitewash a fence, play hooky, find a cure for warts, attend their own funeral, get lost in a cave, and solve a murder mystery.  So save the date and we'll see you at the performance!
