Ghosted tells the story of four students as they navigate through a single day of high school. When one of them experiences a bout of anxiety and is sent to the counselor’s office, issues of friendship and honesty lead all of them to reveal hard truths about their personal experiences and lives. Following these disclosures, the characters brainstorm a collective path towards resiliency, personal strength and mutual support. Following the play, the cast will engage with student audiences in a conversation about resiliency. The objective of the conversation is to further examine the themes of the play, and offer students resources and additional information about a healthy personal growth.


This production is designed to perform in an assembly-like setting for audiences of up to 300 students.
