Ocean City, NJ - The Ocean City Pops and the Ocean City Theatre Company will present the South Jersey premiere of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer as the second installment of their 2009 season. The production will be presented August 18th, 19th and 20th at 7:30PM at the Hughes Performing Arts Center on 6th Street and Atlantic Avenue in Ocean City.

This production is Directed/Choreographed by Michael Hartman. This classic American tale, set on the banks of the Mississippi River, takes us on adventures with Tom, Huck and the gang through graveyards and caves building incredible friendships along the way, and maybe even falling in love. Bring the whole family and join Tom while he tricks the boys into white washing his fence, outsmarts villains and dances and sings through it all!
