We are excited to announce our auditions for Tuck Everlasting!!

What would you do if you had all eternity?

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 Tuck’s 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 with the Tucks on their infinite journey.

Based on best-selling children’s classic by Natalie Babbitt and adapted for the stage by Claudia Shear and Tim Federle, Tuck Everlasting features a soaring score from Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen.

Character Breakdown:

Female, to play 11. A little girl without cuteness – she has lost her father. She is too skeptical for her age, but with an unknown longing for romance and adventure.

Male, to play 17. Light and laughing, he is eternal youth writ large, the lightness shown all the brighter for the shadow of loneliness that he has. Pop tenor.

Male, 23. A burned and bitter man. His natural sweetness shut away. Lost his wife and child, doomed to live with regret. Baritenor.

Female, 40s. Still beautiful after all these years, a matriarch, a mother, a wife. Her homespun wisdom is leavened by her humor and still girlish delight.

Male, 40’s. Once awakened, a vibrant, virile man. He is an indulgent father, a fond if forgetful husband, but a true soul with a deep well of love and profound understanding of the life around him.

Male, 60’s. Creepy and persuasive, a man with an obsession, a secret.

Male, to play 17. Painfully shy, awkward and goofy; but smart and eerily observant

Male, 60’s. Seemingly a buffoon, his simple manner belies a sharp wit and kind heart.

Female, 30’s. A gentle woman almost broken by grief and fear and loss. Adversity finds her brave and unbending.

Female, 60. A loopy old woman, but a loving Grandmother and Mother.
