Tuck Everlasting* November 16-18, 2023
Book by Claudia Shear and Tim Federle
Music by Chris Miller, Lyrics by Nathan Tysen
Based on the novel Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbit
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.
These Shining Lives* February 15-17, 2024
By Melanie Marnich
A play that chronicles the strength and determination of women considered expendable in their day, exploring their true story and its continued resonance. Catherine and her friends are dying, it’s true; but theirs is a story of survival in its most transcendent sense, as they refuse to allow the company that stole their health to kill their spirits—or endanger the lives of those who come after them. Based on the true story of four women who worked for the Radium Dial Company, a watch factory based in Ottawa, Illinois.
