What would you do if you had all eternity? 

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 unending youth, 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 best-selling children’s classic 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.

This one sneaks up on you.  I fell in love with the cast recording of Tuck and read it to see if it would be a good title to produce with my students.  I could not be more pleased with this telling of Natalie Babbitt's novel.  Like the novel, this telling is whimsical and funny, but the themes of the story are so intricately woven into the musical through the book and songs that, by the end, the ballet doesn't require words.  I was very moved.  So glad Samuel French has this title!
