Big River: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

7:30 PM-10:00 PM 

Old Sturbridge Village
1 Old Sturbridge Village Road
Sturbridge, MA 01566

This summer, Brian Clowdus, acclaimed director of the sold-out The Sleepy Hollow Experience, joins forces with Old Sturbridge Village to bring Mark Twains timeless tale of Huckleberry Finn to the shores of the Quinebaug River in this epic outdoor musical production.

The Tony Award-winning musical Big River will sweep audiences down the mighty Mississippi as the irrepressible Huck Finn helps his friend Jim, a runaway slave, escape to freedom at the mouth of the Ohio River. Their adventures along the way are hilarious, suspenseful and heartwarming, bringing to life your favorite characters from the novel, The Widow Douglas and her stern sister, Miss Watson; the uproarious King and Duke, who may or may not be as harmless as they seem; Huck's partner in crime, Tom Sawyer, and their rowdy gang of pals; Huck's drunken father, the sinister Pap Finn; the lovely Mary Jane Wilkes and her trusting family.

Propelled by an award-winning score from Roger Miller, the king of country music, this jaunty journey provides a brilliantly theatrical celebration of pure Americana.

Big River is presented through special arrangement with R & H Theatricals.

STICKWORK: Just Off the Beaten Track

9:00 AM-6:00 PM 

Arts Transcending Borders at College of the Holy Cross
Linden Lane Lawn (Main Campus Entrance)
1 College St.
Worcester, MA 01610

In September 2016, Arts Transcending Borders (ATB), in association with the Cantor Art Gallery, Environmental Studies Program and the Department of Visual Arts, hosted environmental artist Patrick Dougherty as Fall 16 artist-in-residence at the College of the Holy Cross. For the past 30 years, Dougherty has combined elemental building techniques and a deep knowledge of nature to create his organic sculptures. As part of his residency, Dougherty created "Just Off the Beaten Track" with the help of over three hundred volunteers on the lawn by Linden Lane.
Norway maple and gray birch trees used in this installation were sourced responsibly from areas designated for clearing to create wildlife openings at Crow Hill and Cascades West conservation sites managed by the Greater Worcester Land Trust.

Arts Transcending Borders is supported by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
