Slidell Little Theatre Presents TUCK EVERLASTING
Slidell Little Theatre opens its 57th season with Tuck Everlasting - the enchanting tale of a young girl and her discovery of the Tuck family secret. Based on the best-selling, award-winning novel by Natalie Babbitt, Tuck Everlasting is the story of 11-year-old Winnie Foster, a free spirit who longs for adventure. When she meets the Tucks and discovers they hold the secret to everlasting life, she must protect the secret from those who would use it for personal gain and also face an extraordinary choice: return to her own family, or join the Tucks on their never-ending journey.
Tuck Everlasting was adapted into feature films by One Pass Media in 1981 and Walt Disney Pictures in 2002. The world premiere was held at the Alliance Theater in Georgia before moving to the Broadhurst Theatre in New York. The music and lyrics are by Chris Miller & Nathan Tysen and the book by Claudia Shear.
