highest-step-posterGhost River is thrilled to bring one of its signature shows to a brand new audience.


In 1960, test pilot Joseph Kittinger leapt from a weather balloon 100,000 feet above the earth becoming the only person to break the sound barrier without a vehicle. Ghost River Theatre’s imaginative production tells the story of a boy that flew too close to the sun, a woman who fell out of the sky and a man who bravely leaped from the edge of space.
