Tuck Everlasting (Radio Play)
If you could live forever, would you? Called “a warm-spirited and piercingly touching musical,” by The New York Times, this compelling and dynamic musical is based on the popular children’s book of the same name. Eleven-year-old Winnie Harlow is tired of being kept on a short leash by her overprotective mother. When she meets Jesse Tuck and his unendingly youthful family, she embarks on an extraordinary adventure to protect their secret from those who would do anything for a chance at eternal life. With a beautiful folky score, the Issaquah KIDSTAGE production of Tuck Everlasting explores love, family, and living life to the fullest.

The Summer Independent program is a professionally mentored program unique to Village Theatre. It is the pinnacle theatrical experience for students in the KIDSTAGE program and provides autonomy, resources, and mentorship to aspiring theatre professionals to produce their own full-scale show from start to finish. Unlike other KIDSTAGE productions, emphasis is put on the design, creation of the show, and peer-to-peer mentorship. Students take on every aspect of producing; from directing to designing and building sets, creating costumes, running sound and lights, marketing, management, and more.
There are no auditions scheduled at this time. Information about auditions for this program is typically posted in March of each year.
The Summer Independent program is looking for designers, assistants, musicians, and stage crew for productions. All Summer Independent participants are students age 14–25, with a strong interest in pursuing a career in theatre.
