Adapted to help children overcome racial barriers, celebrate multi-culturalism, and realize their power to change the world


Based on the classic by Mark Twain and the Tony Award winning Big River.



You can actively engage in discussions about all aspects of the production from the script development, production design, casting, communications, study guides, and outreach, through monthly forums. As a Diversity Organizer, you will make Huckleberry Finn’s Big River meet the community’s needs and help build lasting relationships across our communities.


Twain's timeless classic sweeps us down the mighty Mississippi as the irrepressible Huck Finn helps his friend Jim, a slave, escape to freedom at the mouth of the Ohio River. Touching and timeless, this tale of friendship against all odds is recreated for young audiences as two best friends demonstrate the power of changing the world.


To explore becoming a Diversity Organizer or other ways to support the development and reach of this production, please contact Jennifer Dickens at or 240.643.0120.



Adventure Theatre MTC celebrates the glorious richness of our world by cultivating Equity, Diversity, and Inclusivity as they inspire the creativity that nurtures great art, artists, and audiences.
