By Claudia Shear, Chris Miller, Nathan Tysen, Tim Federle
Directed by Jeffrey Fiorello. Produced by Bob Denmark.

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.

WINNER! 2015 Suzi Bass Award for Outstanding Musical Production

CRITIC'S PICK! "Tuck startles with its emotional resonance and theatrical force! A warm-spirited and piercingly touching musical!" - The New York Times




March 6 & 7


Calendar Girls Auditions



The Chatham Players will hold auditions for Tim Firth’s play, Calendar Girls on Sunday, March 6th, and Monday, March 7th, from 7pm – 9:30pm. All auditions will occur at The Chatham Playhouse, 23 North Passaic Ave. Production dates are May 6 thru 21, 2022 with rehearsals to begin mid-March. Joseph Porter directs.

The play follows six middle-aged women in a rural Yorkshire chapter of the Women's Institute, an organization whose members plan community outreach events. After one of its members loses her husband to cancer, the group decides to raise money in the husband's name through unconventional means: producing an annual WI chapter calendar that features its members in the buff. As the calendar becomes an international sensation, the women's relationships are tested and their personal lives transformed, whether through gaining the confidence to stand up for themselves, the courage to acknowledge personal loss, or the hope to imagine a future a bit less isolated than the present.

Director Joseph Porter seeks 10 women (ages 25 and up) and 4 men (ages 25-60). He asks that you are familiar with the play and to be prepared to read from sides, which will be found on Chatham Players’ website and will be available at the audition.  As far as accents, the women of the real calendar came from many parts of the country.  Actors should resist the pressure to perform any kind of Yorkshire accent. Comfortable attire recommended.

Please visit our Calendar Girls Audition page for character breakdowns and audition sides. The Chatham Players have an open call casting policy. ALL roles are open, none are precast, and everyone is encouraged to audition. Any questions, please call email
