Theater: 'Tuck Everlasting'

What would you do if you had all eternity?

Posted
BRATTLEBORO — New England Youth Theatre presents a new production of the tale "Tuck Everlasting," opening on Dec. 7 at 7 p.m. Additional performances will be held at 7 p.m., on Dec. 8, 9,14, 15, and 16, and at 2 p.m. on Dec. 9, 10, 16, and 17.

Eleven-year-old Winnie Foster yearns for a life of adventure beyond her white picket fence in Treegap, N.H. but it's not until she becomes unexpectedly entwined with the Tuck family that she gets more than she could have imagined. When Winnie discovers the magical secret of the Tuck family, she embarks on an extraordinary adventure, which leads to making the biggest decision of her life: to return to her life or continue with the Tucks on their infinite journey. Based on the best-selling, award-winning novel by Natalie Babbitt and adapted for the stage by Claudia Shear and Tim Federle, "Tuck Everlasting" features a soaring score from Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen.

Directed by Executive Director Hallie Flower, this production will be the regional premier of the play in conjunction with a Samuel French pilot program which introduces new material to regional theaters throughout the country. The production is also part of NEYT's new Professional Apprentice program, a development program made possible by a grant from the Clowes Fund which was designed to connect NEYT students with our region's theater and theater-related professionals through personalized, advanced, skills-based instruction.

Tickets for these performances are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors, and $13 for students. They may be purchased in advance at neyt.org, in person at the NEYT box office, or by phone 802-246-6398 from noon to 5 p.m., on Wednesdays. The show plays at New England Youth Theatre, 100 Flat St.
