"Tom Sawyer" begins the double-opener at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Canyon Theatre Guild.

Tom Sawyer, Mark Twain's beloved truant, is a natural show-off, who takes great pleasure in missing school, going fishing, and getting others to do his chores. Tom and his friends are being brought to life in the CTG's Family Season production of "Tom Sawyer." This delightful play, with music, presents all the chief adventures of Tom and his friends including the famous white-washing, the school-room episodes, the graveyard experience, the pirate adventure with Huckleberry Finn and their friend Joe Harper, and the return to their own funeral at the village church. Also included are the trial of poor Muff Potter, the finding and losing of treasure, the getting lost in MacDougall's Cave, and the village rejoicing at their rescue.

Under the direction of Jeff Johnson, the cast includes Liam Johnson as Tom Sawyer, Curtis Crawford as Huckleberry Finn and Jill Young as Tom's young love, Becky Thatcher. Tom's younger brother, Sid is played by Jackson Dow, Sam Hafermalz is Joe Harper, and Matthew Villar is Alfred.

"Tom Sawyer" runs from April 3 through May 1, with 2 p.m. matinees every Saturday, and Sunday evening twilight performances at 6:30 p.m. on April 11 and 26, and one Sunday matinee on April 18. Birthday parties are encouraged. Call the box office for details. Tickets are $10-$12-$15 and are available through the CTG Box Office at (661) 799-2702. The Canyon Theatre Guild is located at 24242 Main Street in Old Town Newhall.
