NORWICH – The Norwich High School Musical Club will present The Adventures of Tom Sawyer this weekend, April 12-14, from the Norwich High School auditorium stage. Friday and Saturday’s shows will begin at 7:30 p.m., while Sunday’s matinee performance begins at 2:30 p.m.
“This is a story I grew up with. I remember seeing the movie at the drive-in, watching the weekly series and reading the book by Mark Twain. This musical version has a very home grown feel,” said producer and director Mark Sands, who noted this is his twenty-first musical production. “Those familiar with Tom Sawyer will recognize a number of scenes - the white washing of the fence, the graveyard scene, and the cave scene.”
Sophomore Ryan De Tomi, who’s been involved with local musicals since the sixth grade and plays Tom Sawyer, stated, “Having the experience to be a lead, especially so early, has been wonderful. I’m grateful for the opportunity to show what I’ve got.”
