The classic story of courage in the face of danger — epitomized in one particular Mark Twain novel — will come alive on stage in Red Deer.
With a cast of no less than 63, Cornerstone Youth Theatre is presenting the Broadway musical The Adventures of Tom Sawyer from Oct. 31 to Nov. 8 in Red Deer. Tom Sawyer and his mischievous gang, Aunt Polly and, of course, Huckleberry Finn are some of the stage characters the audience will see, accompanied at times by some rollicking country music.
Shows will be Oct. 31 at 7 p.m.; Nov. 1 at 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.; Nov. 7 at 7 p.m.; and Nov. 8 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Advance sales ticket prices for reserved seats are children, $10, seniors $11, adults $12.
Ticket sold at the door (all seats) are $14. Discount matinees are for one day only, the Nov. 1, at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., for $10.
The performances take place at Cornerstone’s new show venue, at the New Life Fellowship Church at 20 Kelloway Cres. Tickets may be purchased online at the Cornerstone website: www.CornerstoneYouthTheatre.org or by phoning the Box Office at 403-986-2981.
