The Fantasticks

Music by Harvey Schmidt. Lyrics by Tom Jones.

Directed by Rebecca Gomez

July 20th - August 5th, 2018

The Fantasticks is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, and their two fathers who try to keep them apart. The narrator, El Gallo, asks the audience to use their imagination and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic. The boy and the girl fall in love, grow apart and finally find their way back to each other after realizing the truth in El Gallo’s words that, “without a hurt, the heart is hollow.”

With its minimal costumes, small band and virtually nonexistent set, The Fantasticks is an intimate show that may be performed in virtually any space, engaging the audience’s imagination and showcasing a strong ensemble cast. Its moving tale of young lovers who become disillusioned, only to discover a more mature, meaningful love is punctuated by a bountiful series of catchy, memorable songs, many of which have become classics.
