Fortunately, we have a number of our original cast who are able to return, but still have several roles to be filled; see current list of open roles below (list subject to change). We’re excited to welcome new people into this wonderful group. In addition to a number of lead roles, we are also looking for ensemble members, who are a very important part of this show. The ensemble is vital for setting the tone for the whole show and is on stage for many of the song and dance numbers.

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.
