“We are excited to present Tuck Everlasting to the community,” says Executive Director Patience Long. “Our small cast of 12 students has worked very hard to bring this production to life while navigating COVID-19 protocols.

Set in 1880 Tuck Everlasting is the story of 10-year-old Winnie Foster, trapped by the rules imposed by her strait-laced family, who runs away and discovers the humble Tucks. This enchanting family accidentally stumbled upon a spring long ago that gave them eternal life. Winnie promises to keep their dangerous secret but then a sinister stranger in a yellow suit arrives at their door with intentions to steal the immortal water for himself. Ultimately Winnie must choose whether or not to drink the immortal
water and join them in an everlasting adventure – or live on in a natural way, living a life full of the ordinary beauty of growth and change.
The production by the Center for the Arts is directed by Denise Parton, Director of Education at the Center for the Arts.
