Book passage on a riverboat down the mighty Mississippi, teeming with songs and the stories of the legendary Mark Twain! Told with wry humor and surprising emotion, played on a parade of guitars, banjos, and harmonicas, this music-filled journey will have you tapping your feet as it warms your heart. 
This production runs approximately 2 hours with one 15 minute intermission.

Sensory-friendly performances are designed to create an experience that can be shared and enjoyed by all. Accommodations for these performances include:

• A reduction in lighting and sound effects that may be considered jarring or startling
• Modification of house lights during the performance
• Patrons are free to talk or leave their seats during the performance
• Extra staff on hand at the theatre
• A judgement-free, no-shush zone

The Center has assembled a Pre-Visit Guide that will provide visuals to help familiarize patrons with the spaces and experiences they will encounter while attending this show.
