TUCK EVERLASTING Opens Children's Theatre Season in October
Happy State Bank and Casa Mañana Children's Theatre presents Tuck Everlasting, October 4-20, sponsored by Frank Kent Cadillac. Tickets are on sale now.
What would you do if you had all eternity? Based on the best-selling children's classic by Natalie Babbitt, Tuck Everlasting tells the story of eleven-year-old Winnie Foster, who yearns for a life of adventure beyond her white picket fence. When she becomes unexpectedly entwined with the Tuck Family, she gets more than she could have ever imagined. After learning about the magic behind the Tucks' unending youth, Winnie 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. This show is suitable for most audiences.
