What would you do if you could live forever?
Eleven-year-old Winnie Foster yearns for a life of adventure beyond her white picket fence, but not until she becomes unexpectedly entwined with the Tuck family does she get more than she could have imagined. When Winnie learns of the magic behind the Tuck’s immortality, she must fight to protect their secret from those who would do anything for a chance at eternal life. As her adventure unfolds, Winnie faces an extraordinary choice: return to her life, or continue with the Tucks on their infinite journey.
Based on the best-selling children’s classic by Natalie Babbitt, adapted for the stage by Claudia Shear and Tim Federle, and featuring a soaring score from Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen, the TYA edition of Tuck Everlasting is a condensed 70-minute version of the Broadway production, re-conceived by the authors to be performed by nine actors.
"Tuck startles with its emotional resonance and theatrical force! A warm-spirited and piercingly touching musical!" The New York Times
"Poignancy mixes well with humor, the songs are fresh and sweet [...] The music by Chris Miller is magical, grounded in folk, foot-pounding earthy beats and soaring melodies [...] Nathan Tysen's lyrics are even better - delving into complex themes with elegance [...] Long may it live."
