The BackLot Players Present - The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
The Backlot Players at the Rose Theater present January’s addition to the ’19– ’20 season.
One of the most beloved characters of American fiction, Tom Sawyer, is a force of nature. He is either sneaking out of his Aunt Polly’s house at night to visit the graveyard or duping his playmates into white-washing a fence. Don’t forget about him stealing a kiss from the ravishing Becky Thatcher, or taking a stand against the murderous Injun Joe. Tom’s small-town adventures on the banks of the Mississippi River are the magical essence of childhood, a joyous leap into the great river of time and memory.
January 31st, February 1st, 7th, 8th at 7:30 PM. February 2nd, 9th at 2:30 PM.
Kick off the inaugural Jingle Fest with the 29th Hometown Holidays Parade on Thursday, November 28th. It is a magical way to usher in the season with a nighttime parade, brilliant spectacle of lights and music promenading through Forsyth’s Historic district. The celebration continues with Santa’s Corner and Secret Santa’s Workshop on Saturday, November 30th. Keep in shape and have some fun, dressed in your finest festive gear, as part of the Jingle Jog 5k.
