Environment draws us into Huck's world in family-friendly stage version of Twain's novel

Sometimes a scenic designer's job is made easier by the landscape and scenery that extends beyond the stage.

That's the case in the Lantern Theatre's engrossing production of "Huck Finn" an adaptation of Mark Twain's beloved book "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn."

The theater, in this case, is a barn nestled amid farmland, trees and bike trails in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

The quiet, remote atmosphere reinforces the feeling of being away from it all-- just as Huck and the slave Jim floated in the expansive, open Mississippi River.

"Huck Finn" will be performed at 7 p.m. Friday and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Lantern Theatre, 7243 Canal Road, Valley View. Tickets cost $12 for adults, $8 for children 12 and younger. Call (216) 401-5131 for more information.
