Although the summer theatre season is winding down, the Dorset Theatre Festival has one more play for people to enjoy. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer will be playing from Wednesday, September 9 through September 12 at 8 pm with a matinee on September 12 at 3 pm. This is a great show for the family, although when we interviewed him, Kirk Jackson, the director, thought children from eight up would enjoy it more than younger children,
Based on the classic book by Mark Twain, the play has all of the elements of the book, humor, excitement, some danger. Our interview with Kirk gives more details about the play and the cast which includes local favorites Kim Johnson Turner and Doug Ryan. Kirk also reflects on his busy summer playing Sherlock Holmes in Sherlock Holmes and The Jersey Lily and directing Rigol etto for the Hubbard Hall Opera Company.
