CYT Houston students John Bailey and Zane Nixon are best friends both on stage and off- they play buddies Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn in CYT Houston’s current production of “Tom Sawyer.”
According to The Courier of Montgomery County, “the best friends in real life have found that the roles of Sawyer and Finn have come quite naturally.” Here’s what Nixon (Finn) told the paper:
“We know how to do the best friend thing, so it’s much easier to show it on stage because it’s like real life.”
Bailey said, “he likes to be with his friends” and has been told, “he has a mischievous side,” much like Tom Sawyer.
