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
