Moorhead, MN (WDAY-TV) It's already getting rave reviews, and we're still days from the first performance. Horizon Middle School students are taking us back in time with a favorite, classic story. It's the Adventures of Tom Sawyer, the musical.

There are sixty 6th, 7th and 8th graders in the cast and another 30 on the tech crew, plus Moorhead High School mentors. They've been putting in long hours at practice to learn not only their roles, but life skills along the way.

Patrick Kasper - Tom Sawyer Choreographer: "It's also good because we talk about respect a lot, respect for the arts, and they learn respect for each other, and they learn respect for the people they are working with. Because you really have to be, we have 60 kids in the cast because every kid has to be where they need to be when they need to be there because if they're not there, we notice them."

You can catch the Adventures of Tom Sawyer Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7 pm and Sunday at 2 pm, all at the Moorhead High Auditorium. You can all the box office at 218-284-2345 for tickets. They are $8 for adults and $5 for students.
