Playhouse on the Square, in partnership with FedEx, tamburrino, inc., and super sponsor Dr. Thomas Ratliff will open 2019 with the musical adaptation of The National Education Association 2017 Teachers' Top 100 Books for Children award recipient, Tuck Everlasting.
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. As her adventure unfolds, Winnie faces an extraordinary choice: return to her life, or continue with the Tucks on their infinite journey. Interwoven with intricate dance numbers, soaring ballads, and amazing spectacle Tuck Everlasting will be a production for the entire family to enjoy.
