Dallas Children's Theater Presents TUCK EVERLASTING
What if you could live forever? What if you were asked to keep a shocking secret? Young Winnie Foster suddenly finds herself faced with these dilemmas when she ventures from her routine one single summer morning. What she encounters at the foot of a magnificent tree in the woods on her family's land brings her face to face with monumental life choices. A romance, a new family, perhaps eternal life? What follows is a whirlwind of events and a life-affirming adventure that The New York Times called "fearsome and beautifully written." Considered one of the classics of modern children's literature, this poetic story comes intensely to life on the DCT stage.
