Discounted Tickets to "Big River" at Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center June 8 to July 8


Presented by Actors' Repertory Theatre of Simi, Big River is a Tony-winning musical based on Mark Twain's classic novel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Featuring music in the bluegrass and country styles in keeping with the setting of the novel, Mark Twain's beloved classic takes you back to old "Muddy Waters," as Huck Finn and the runaway Jim escape down the mighty Mississippi River in search of freedom. Featuring a score from country music legend Roger Miller, the hilarious, suspenseful and heartwarming Big River can be enjoyed at the Simi Valley Cultural Arts Center June 8th through July 8th.

Please note: There is some pretty liberal use of the “N” word in the dialogue which may be horrendously offensive to some patrons (as it should be). The story of Huckleberry Finn takes place in and around Mississippi during the time preceding the emancipation proclamation when the use of that word was commonplace. While the producers do not in any way condone the use of this word, it is not being struck from the script for the purpose of historical accuracy.

What do pants, the pony express, cannons, paper money, skis, violins, baklava and “hooray!” have in common? Answer: Genghis Khan introduced them all to the West.

Curated and developed by dinosaur expert Don Lessem, the exhibition features more than 200 spectacular objects on display, including rare and sophisticated weapons, costumes, jewels, ornaments, instruments and numerous other fascinating relics and elaborate artifacts from 13th-century Mongolia.

“I went to Mongolia to look for fossils and discovered the truth about Genghis Khan, a civilizing genius,” said Lessem. “It’s a great story best told in a major exhibition.”

Now the most comprehensive exhibition of Genghis Khan and his treasures invades the Reagan Library, its only Southern California stop on an international tour that has drawn more than a million visitors.

The Ventura County Library is available 24/7 at www.vencolibrary.org.
