Here's what's going on in town today

Good day on this hot Thursday.

LCC's latest summer theater production opened yesterday. Adapted from Mark Twain’s “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” this play follows Huck Finn as he flees the claws of "civilization" for the freedom of the mighty Mississippi, only to find himself running from mobs, getting shot at, stealing gold, digging escape tunnels and mastering disguises. His greatest adventure might be unexpectedly finding his own moral compass. 7 p.m. July 20-24. LCC's Amphitheatre, between Dart Auditorium and the Gannon Building, with Dart Auditorium as the rain location. (517) 483-1488. lcc.edu.
