Young Sam Clemens and his brother Henry step onto a Mississippi steamboat and aboard the chance of a lifetime. As a cub apprentice, his burning ambition propels him to become a steamboat pilot, but he soon discovers that learning the great, relentless river will be harder than he ever imagined. Now Sam must navigate the hair-raising, hilarious and dangerous currents, as mysterious as the Mississippi itself. This musical adaptation is based on Mark Twain's memoir.
