Jim, the runaway slave (LaMont Ridgell) and Huck Finn (Michael Scott Wells) take a rest from their journey alongside the Mighty Mississippi in Contra Costa Civic Theatre's production of "Big River."

I had the pleasure of seeing “Big River: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” which opened last weekend at Contra Costa Civic Theatre in El Cerrito.

A talented cast does justice to the Tony Award-winning score by the late great singer/songwriter Roger Miller. Performances continue on Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons through March 13 at CCCT, 951 Pomona Ave.
