Tom Sawyer, his Aunt Polly, and Huckleberry Finn leave their Missouri home to pay a visit to Polly’s sister, Sally and her husband Silas in Arkansas. On this trip, Tom and Huck encounter thievery, a dead body, and possibly the wrong man being accused of murder. Leave it to Tom to figure it all out in “Tom Sawyer, Detective.”
East Lynne Theater Company’s much anticipated 9th Annual Student Workshop is back!
