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).

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