Big River is a musical based on Mark Twain's novel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Though trying to stay "respectable," Huckleberry Finn runs into trouble when his father, Pap, returns to town. Huck is forced to fake his own death to escape and joins up with another on the run - Jim, a slave in the search for freedom.
As they head down the river, they get sucked into scams involving two "aristocrats," one of which lands Jim in chains once again, and Huck and Tom Sawyer join together to free him. Rated PG.

The Boys Next Door takes place in a communal residence in a New England city, where four mentally handicapped men live under the supervision of an earnest, but increasingly "burned out" young social worker named Jack.
Norman works in a doughnut shop, is unable to resist the lure of the sweet pastries and takes great pride in the huge bundle of keys that dangles from his waist. Lucien P. Smith has the mind of a five-year-old but imagines that he is able to read and comprehend the weighty books he lugs about. Arnold, the ringleader of the group, is a hyperactive, compulsive chatterer who suffers from deep-seated insecurities and a persecution complex. Barry, a brilliant schizophrenic who is devastated by the unfeeling rejection of his brutal father, fantasizes that he is a golf pro.
Mingled with scenes from the daily lives of these four (where "little things" sometimes become momentous, and often very funny), are moments of great poignancy. With touching effectiveness, we are reminded that the handicapped – like the rest of us – want only to love and laugh and find some meaning and purpose in the brief time that they are allotted on this earth. Rated PG.
