Come with us to Terabithia!


Christian Youth Theater (CYT) students will present Bridge to Terabithia, May 12 through 20 at the El Camino High School Truax Center in Oceanside.

Bridge to Terabithia is a musical adaptation of Katherine Patterson’s Newbery Award winning children’s book. This heartwarming play explores the adolescent years of Jesse Aarons as he grows up in rural Virginia and encounters Leslie Burke, an imaginative girl who recently moved from the city.  Together they deal with the struggles of growing up, facing bullies, and being misunderstood by adults by escaping to their imaginary world of Terabithia, where they rule as king and queen. When tragedy strikes, not even the confines of Terabithia can keep Jesse from learning what it means to lose a friend, and the healing power of love.

            The cast includes local actors Taylor Wuthrich of Carlsbad (Jesse Aarons), Melanie Tierce of Murrieta (Leslie Burke), Caitlin Allen of Aguanga (Miss Edmunds), Cailey Whittaker of Carlsbad (Mrs. Aarons), Bradley Allen of Aguanga (Mr. Aarons), Katelyn Park of San Marcos (Ellie Aarons), and Melissa Peltz of Encinitas (Brenda Aarons).
