THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN is a literary classic, and one novel that lends itself to a repertory presentation. That is what it receives in this performance by the St. Charles Players. Performed in what the publisher calls "radio theatre style," Huck Finn and characters comes alive. By using a cast of more than a dozen performers, and mixing in music, this production allows youngsters, and oldsters, to enjoy the tales that have made this book a classic. Although the abridgment certainly takes away from Twain's tale, it also allows the players to emphasize the most enjoyable scenes from the book, in just the right mix for a family audience. D.J.S.
