Saints Drama to Perform Tuck Everlasting
Several East Providence Residents Are Featured in the Cast of the Popular Children’s Story.
Saints Drama Club will perform the musical “Tuck Everlasting” on December 5-8 at the Joseph and Blanche Coutu Theater. The story is based on the 1975 children’s book by Natalie Babbitt and adapted for the stage by Claudia Shear and Tim Federle and premiered in 2015.
Several East Providence residents are in the cast. Senior Freya Badger plays Mae Tuck, junior Madelyn Paquette plays Nana and Carny is played by junior Lauren Reilly. Featured dancers include junior Julia Carvelli.
“Tuck Everlasting” is the story of Winnie Foster, an 11-year-old girl who meets the Tuck Family, who are seemingly eternally youthful. Once Winnie learns their secret, it is up to her to protect it from getting into the wrong hands, especially from the Man in the Yellow Suit. Ultimately, she is faced with a decision to return to her life or stay with the Tucks forever.
There will be three evening performances on December 5-7 at 7:30 pm, and a matinee on Sunday, December 8 at 2 pm. Tickets are $15 general admission and $10 for students and senior citizens. Tickets may be reserved by calling the Saints box office at 401-723-8100 x160 or purchased at the door.
