Gallery 7 Theatre presents Adventures of Tom Sawyer

The main-stage production begins Nov. 8 and runs for several performances in Abbotsford.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer will feature the talents of Forest Eliot Shuster (Huckleberry Finn) and Phil Dyck (Tom Sawyer).

Gallery 7 Theatre presents Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer as its opening main-stage production of the 2013/2014 Spice of Life theatre season.

The cast, who play multiple roles throughout the production, features both new and veteran Gallery 7 Theatre performers.

Playing the title role of Tom Sawyer is Phil Dyck, who will be remembered for his performance as the character in Gallery 7’s production of Adventures of Huckleberry Finn in 2008.
