In the Alliance’s fall production for middle and high school audiences, Castle Crenshaw, a.k.a. Ghost, has been running his entire life, but for all the wrong reasons. Then one day he meets Coach, an Olympic medalist who sees his unique talent and offers him a life-changing invitation to join the middle school track club. Can Ghost harness his raw gift for speed, or will his past finally catch up to him? Based on the popular YA novel of the same name that was a National Book Award finalist for young people’s literature and named one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read, Ghost teaches the importance of finding your team.
