New Production!

"Trouble is, you can’t run away from yourself."

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 raw talent. Can Ghost achieve the speed he needs for success, or will his past finally catch up to him? A world premiere especially developed for Nashville Children’s Theatre.

HELP OTHER KIDS RUN LIKE GHOST!

When you attend the new play Ghost we encourage you to bring gently used or brand new sneakers, cleats, and/or ballet shoes. A collection box will be in the lobby.

A big-hearted, ambitious Tennessee girl attended a workshop reading of Ghost a few months ago, and was inspired to work across her community to collect shoes for those who are in need.

This production was created in part through special funding from Metro Arts' Creation Grant program.
