Weekend Showcase: Maple Grove Senior High’s “Tuck Everlasting”
This is the final weekend for you to catch Maple Grove Senior High’s fall musical “Tuck Everlasting.”
About “Tuck Everlasting”
“Tuck Everlasting” is based on a 1975 children’s novel by Natalie Babbitt and became a play on Broadway in 2016.
“We are one of the first high schools in the country to get to do it,” said director Nikki Swoboda. “Tuck Everlasting” is a great show to bring your whole family to. It’s based on a book that was written for young adults, so it’s actually a page to stage situation. It really digs into what the original narrative was.”
“Tuck Everlasting” is set in the 1800s. A fair comes to town and brings excitement to the rural community, but the fair also includes a family who is immortal. Ruby Brisco plays Winnie Foster and Charlie Labarg plays Jesse Tuck, the youngest member of the Tuck family.
The story is intriguing and the students do a great job. From the actors to the orchestra seated behind the magnificent open stage, the performance is magnetic and holds your attention.
The production is on stage tonight and Saturday night at Maple Grove Senior High Theater. Showtimes are 7 p.m.
