What Would You Give For Everlasting Life? Discover The Secret Of TUCK EVERLASTING at WPPAC this August
This summer, bring your family to see TUCK EVERLASTING, a heartwarming, evocative musical about living life to the fullest. When Winnie goes looking for adventure and meets a family with a fabulous secret, their chance encounter will change them all forever. The show explores eternal love, never-ending life, and what it means to truly feel alive. Produced by WPPAC's Stage 2 Program, the Westchester premiere of TUCK EVERLASTING the musical will play the WPPAC stage August 2-11.
The story of TUCK EVERLASTING may be familiar to many theatergoers; schools often include the novel on which the show is based in their curriculums. However, the musical is as much for adults as it is for kids. "Often when theatres say that a show is for 'families' they really mean it's just for children. This is not so in Tuck Everlasting," says Ariana Moses, WPPAC's Director of Education and Producer of Stage 2. "Tuck is a true family show, it will be enjoyed by people of ALL ages - children, parents, and grandparents alike." The show is appropriate for ages seven and up.
TUCK EVERLASTING is directed by Amy Griffin and choreographed by Kelli Gautreau with musical direction by Stephen Ferri. Scenic Design by Travis George, Costume Design by Asia-Anansi McCallum, Lighting Design by Jamie Roderick, Stage Managed by Jack Rhea. Music by Chris Miller, lyrics by Nathan Tysen, book by Claudia Shear and Tim Federle, based upon the novel by Natalie Babbitt.
