PRINCETON — Students at Princeton Christian Academy will present “Tom Sawyer” directed by Kathy Cook at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday in the Princeton Bible Church auditorium.
The play is based on a Mark Twain novel written in 1876 about a young boy growing up along the Mississippi River. The story is set in the town of “St. Petersburg,” inspired by Hannibal, Mo., where Twain lived. The novel’s protagonist, Tom, is a mischievous boy with an active imagination who spends most of the novel getting himself, and often his friends, into and out of trouble.
The cast includes Will Finley as Tom Sawyer, Wesley Baker, Drew Grey, Noah Irizarry, Rhiannon Searl, Serenity Laurino, Grace Wolbrecht, Jenna Grimmer, Lizzy May, Gabrien Graham, Eliza Atkinson, Nolan Mallory, Wyatt Baker, Claudette Rosario, Gabe Thompson, Mauricio Jones, Samuel Wolbrecht, Sophia Brandenburg, Kenley Grimmer, Katrina Rudolph, Kelly Van Den Bussche, Gabe Cook, Ivy Brown, Kimmie Glenn, Jordyn Pollok, Thressa Nelson, Aliyah Cummings and Emily Fisher.
The public is invited to this special performance at no charge. A free-will offering will be collected to benefit future PCA activities.
