Middlebury Community Players hold auditions for spring musical

MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury Community Players will hold auditions for adult actors and children/teens age 11 and up for the musical version of “Tuck Everlasting” on Wednesday, Jan. 15, and Thursday, Jan. 16, from 6:30-9 p.m., at Mary Hogan Elementary School, 201 Mary Hogan Drive, in Middlebury.

“Tuck Everlasting” is a musical based on the 1975 American children’s novel “Tuck Everlasting” by Natalie Babbitt. Adapted for the stage by Claudia Shear and Tim Federle, it features a soaring score from Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen.

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 Tucks’ 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 on with the Tucks on their infinite journey.

Audition registration begins at 6 p.m. MCP asks that auditioners come to only one audition. Call-backs, if needed, will be held on Saturday, Jan. 18, at Mary Hogan School. Show Dates are April 30 through May 3 at Town Hall Theater in Middlebury. Kristen Ginsburg will direct, with musical direction by Jen Allred and choreography by Kendra Gratton.  A list of roles, audition forms, and other details are at middleburycommunityplayers.org.
