In "Trails," after a dozen years of silence, an unexpected meeting between childhood friends Mike and Seth leads the pair to fulfill a promise made in their youth: to hike the Appalachian Trail together. As they traverse the 2,000 miles from Georgia to Maine, powerful memories surface, leading the men to confront their past, themselves and the haunting secret that kept them apart for so long.
Captivating audiences with its deeply moving and inventive tale of love and loyalty combined with an enchanting original score, "Trails" offers a profound exploration of what people will do to keep from losing what they cherish the most.
The cast comprises Joel Walker as Seth, Michael Morrow Hammack as Mike, Rachel Lewis as Amy, with additional roles played by Quinlan Fitzgerald, Dannielle Weathers, and Kevin Michael Moore.
"Trails" features music by Jeff Thomson and lyrics by Jordan Mann with the book by Christy Hall. Brian Shnipper directs the Broadway Rose's production, with music direction by Eric Nordin and choreography by Dan Murphy.
