Sue Suchyta Dearborn Times Herald November 4, 2012. p.22

A stage version of the novel, Bridge to Terabithia, adapted by Katherine Patterson and Stephanie Tolan, opens at 7 p.m. Nov. 9 for the public, and at 10 a.m. Nov. 12 for school matinees in Adray Auditorium at the Mackenzie Fine Arts Center on the campus of Henry Ford College.

The show follows two children, Leslie and Jesse, who learn to trust each other and their imaginations to create a magical, imaginary world in the woods that they name Terabithia. Facing one’s fears and dealing with grief are also lessons interwoven into the show.
