Audiences will warm to this lively tale set in 1840 in St. Petersburg, Mo., a bustling town on the banks of the Mississippi River. Fourteen-year-old Tom (Nick Schnobel) is busy navigating the travails of teen life as he goes head-to-head with his stern Aunt Polly (Samantha Gregoire), falls in love with the pretty and spirited Becky Thatcher (Faith Pustover), and embarks on a grand adventure with Becky and that irresistible rascal Huckleberry Finn (Thomas Callahan). Along the way, Tom meets a terrifying scoundrel named Injun Joe (Jamie Monetta), copes with his bratty half-brother Sid (Cam Hillerich), and interacts with a host of colorful townspeople.

Tickets are $6 and $8, and may be purchased at the box office (616-786-1051) or online at the Friends of West Ottawa Theatre website (www.westottawadramaboosters.org).
