Spotlight Children’s Theatre presents “Bridge to Terabithia” June 18-20, 24-27, 2010 with 7:30 p.m. Friday performances and 2 p.m. for Saturday and Sunday performances. The production will take place at Spotlight Theatre, 1381 Riverside Drive, in Tulsa, OK.
This powerful adaptation with music focuses the humor, warmth and emotional intensity of the award-winning novel by Katherine Paterson. The production is directed by Catherine Christie, and Joyce Shank serves as musical director and pianist.
“Bridge to Terabithia” is about a new girl from the city named Leslie, who befriends Jesse, an adolescent struggling to reconcile his artistic leanings with the pargmatism of his family and rural Virigina culture. Together they create Terabithiam, a fantasy kingdome where they are safe from those who don’t understand them. When tragedy strikes, the strength gained in Terabithia takes Jesse forward on his own and lets him share the magic of his dreams.
Tickets prices are $10 for adults, $9 for seniors, and $8 for children. Theatre opens 30 minutes prior to show time. For more information or reservations, call (918) 587-5030.
