      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."
      Director Jimmy Dee Arnold is thrilled to bring this much-loved show to the stage. With songs that have become classics, like “Try To Remember,” and “Plant a Radish,” it’s no surprise that The Fantasticks is the longest running musical in history. But don’t let that fool you – the story is universal, and each cast gives the book and music new life, delighting audiences along the way.

      Music direction is by Daniel Bachelis, with choreography by Patricia Mazzola and Zoe Van Slooten The talented cast features Alexis Pratt as Luisa and Peter Dannug as Matt, Roby Roy as Hucklebee and Doug Burogyne as Bellamy, David Burfoot as Henry, John Lamb as Mortimer, Amanda Notrika as the Mute, and Brodie Brockie as El Gallo.

      Cost: Adult $28, Senior $25, Student $15
