Bridge to Terabithia

Bridge to Terabithia
–Theatre G
A world where fantasy and friendship collide!

Jesse Aarons is a shy boy who dreams of being an artist. Leslie Burke, an outgoing but unpopular new girl in town, introduces him to a world of imagination. Together they create Terabithia, a fantasy kingdom where their friendship grows as Jesse’s world expands. When tragedy strikes, he finds the strength to carry on and share the magic with others. This powerful musical adaptation focuses the humor, warmth, and emotional intensity of Katherine Paterson’s Newbery Award-winning novel into a deeply moving theatrical event.

By Katherine Paterson and Stephanie S. Tolan. Music by Steve Liebman.
