Auditions for Tuck Everlasting at MLT
Marblehead Little Theatre is excited to announce auditions for Tuck Everlasting directed by Trudi Olivetti and musically directed by Thom Smoker. The auditions are open to non-Equity actors and will be held on December 12 and 13 from 7-9 pm at Marblehead Little Theatre, 12 School Street, Marblehead. Callbacks are December 16 from 7-9 pm. Register and schedule your audition at https://www.mltlive.com/audition-call/tuck-everlasting-auditions/. Walk-ins are welcome if time allows.
The musical follows young Winnie Foster, who yearns for a life outside of her little house with her mother and grandmother. When she unexpectedly becomes acquainted with the Tuck family, she gets more than she ever imagined. Winnie learns of the magic of the Tucks’ unending youth and must fight to protect their secret from those who would do anything for a chance at eternal life. As the adventure unfolds, Winnie has to make a choice: return to her life or continue to be with the Tucks on their infinite journey. The production is based on the best-selling classic novel by Natalie Babbitt and adapted for the stage by Claudia Shear and Tim Federle, with the score from Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen.
All actors are asked to prepare 32 bars or 90 seconds of a song from a traditional or contemporary musical. Dance elements and reading of the script will be included during callbacks. Please fill out and submit the online audition form at mltlive.org and make an appointment for your audition. Have your calendar handy and be prepared to enter rehearsal conflicts. You will be asked to upload a headshot (a JPEG file) and a theatrical résumé (a PDF file) if you have one. If you don’t have either of these files you can still submit the form. Walk-ins are welcomed and will be seen as time permits.
All actors and production staff must be fully vaccinated for Covid-19 prior to auditioning. Please be prepared to show proof of vaccination.
Performances run February 24, 25, 26 and March 2, 3, 4, 5 in 2023. Rehearsals begin January 3 and will take place Tuesday and Thursday evenings and on Sunday afternoons, more frequently in the last two weeks.

MLT values diversity and begins casting from the position that all parts are open and neutral. We welcome and encourage all to attend and audition. If specific race/ethnicity or other characteristics are central to the story, we will make this clear in audition notices.
