Tuck Everlasting is a musical based on the 1975 American children’s novel Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt. Adapted for the stage by Claudia Shear and Tim Federle, it features a soaring score from Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen.

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. When Winnie learns of the magic behind the Tucks’ unending youth, she 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 on with the Tucks on their infinite journey.

The Cast:
Tucker Atwood
Emma Page
Fergus Ryan

Director: Dr. Gary Gillen
Stage Manager: Chris Frappier
Producer: Kevin Commins

Performances were at the Vermont Coffee Company Playhouse

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) is one of the world’s most frequently produced plays and has been translated into several dozen languages. Featured are all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays, meant to be performed in 97 minutes, by three actors. Fast paced, witty, and physical, it’s full of laughter for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Reduced Shakespeare Company’s classic farce, two of its original writer/performers thoroughly revised the show to create The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) [REVISED] and bring it up to date for 21st-century audiences, incorporating some of the funniest material from the numerous amateur and professional productions that have been performed throughout the world.
