Big River: On Stage In Clovis

by Terrance V. Mc Arthur

Mark Twain created Huck in 1884, and the boy reached the Broadway musical stage in 1985 as Big River: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, with book by William Hauptman and music and lyrics by Roger Miller (“King of the Road,” “Dang Me,” “You Can’t Roller Skate in a Buffalo Herd” — Yes. That Roger Miller). Centerstage Clovis Community Theatre has staged a lively version at the Mercedes Edwards Theatre that bounces along with enthusiasm.
