Based on Katherine Paterson’s Newberry Award–winning novel, The Bridge to Terabithia is a 75-minute show that tells the story of an alienated boy named Jesse living in rural Virginia and Leslie, a new girl from the city named who introduces him to a whole new world. Together, the two friends create Terabithia, a fantasy world where their imaginations run wild, until tragedy strikes and their fantasy world transforms from an escape into a source of courage. Accompanied by a lyrical musical score, this production is sure to entertain the whole family, though it’s not recommended for children younger than 8 years old and pet goldfish.
