Great Lakes Theater will bring its free outreach touring production of "Huck Finn" to Clague Playhouse in February.

Based on the novel "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain, it has been adapted by Eric Schmiedl. Two runaways – a boy and a slave – team up for adventure on the mighty Mississippi. Huckleberry Finn finds freedom on the run, out-thinking colorful con-men, narrowly escaping a family feud and even passing as a girl as he and Jim make their way down the “big river.” On the journey, they learn lessons of integrity, dignity and friendship.

At turns dramatic then hilarious, two performers and one storytelling troubadour play a dozen characters in this timeless tale, uniquely adapted from Twain’s classic American novel. Recommended for students in Grades 3 and up.

The free presentation is Saturday, Feb. 10, 2 p.m., at Clague Playhouse, 1371 Clague Road in Westlake. There are no reserved tickets available; entry is first come, first served.
