"There are two ways down one long road. One clear path to two conclusions. Does the story end, or never end? Does the secret fade, or is it everlasting?"

“It is a fanciful tale that is related in Tuck Everlasting, but one that sends the imagination soaring.” - Jeffrey Ellis, Broadwayworld.com

After adventuring beyond her white picket fence, “good girl” Winnie Foster meets the energetic teenager Jesse Tuck, who leads her on an unexpected, magical journey. Soon she is faced with an extraordinary question: If you could choose to live forever, would you? Based on the best-selling novel by Natalie Babbitt, this heartfelt Broadway musical is full of soaring melodies and mischief. Performed with a live orchestra!

HELP OTHER KIDS RUN LIKE GHOST!

When you attend the new play Ghost we encourage you to bring gently used or brand new sneakers, cleats, and/or ballet shoes. A collection box will be in the lobby.

A big-hearted, ambitious Tennessee girl attended a workshop reading of Ghost a few months ago, and was inspired to work across her community to collect shoes for those who are in need.
