San Diego State University's School of Theatre, Television and Film is proud to announce the original production of Tom and Huck and Jim, A Mark Twain Centenary Tribute. Based on the classic novels written by Twain, the production brings to life the adventures of Tom and Huck in the Antebellum South on the Mississippi River.

In Tom and Huck and Jim, audiences are transported to 19th Century Hannibal, Mo., where Twain grew up and wrote his classic stories. This literary tale paints a picture of growing up in segregated America, and the trials and temptations therein, including the racism and prejudice of the day.

Twain acts as a tour guide and narrator in the play. New musical compositions are being created for this production, which is heavily influenced by ragtime and gospel themes. With Twain, music and much-loved characters, this fun production is still sure to spark lively discussions, as the language and situations in this play are historically accurate for the period.

Tom and Huck and Jim shows in the SDSU Experimental Theatre at 8 p.m., March 12, 13 and 18. Matinee performances are at 2 p.m., March 14, and 4 p.m., March 20.

Group sales can be arranged for 10 or more patrons attending the same performance for only $10 per ticket (including service charge). To make arrangements for a group, please contact Jarret Addleman at 619-594-6365. Information and individual tickets are $13 to $15, plus service charge, and can be obtained online at theatre.sdsu.edu or at the Performing Arts Box Office at 619-594-6884.
