Tom Sawyer: A Ballet in 3 Acts

A Kansas City Ballet World Premiere that will shine in the new Kauffman Center!

Don’t miss this World Premiere ballet based on an American literary masterpiece featuring the choreography of William Whitener and an original score by Tony Award©-winning composer Maury Yeston.

You will be touched by this timeless coming of age story of young Tom’s struggles between ‘being growed up’ and the pull of wild, untamed childhood. Children and adults alike will be transported, revisiting Tom and Becky’s budding romance, Huck and Tom’s exploits on a raft on the Mississippi, their ‘funeral,’ and the many other adventures that have become part of our central American myth and treasured heritage.
