The Fantasticks

Music by Harvey Schmidt
Book and Lyrics by Tom Jones

Directed by Franklin R. Leavitt
Musical Direction by Adrienne Cosey

The Fantasticks unfolds as two young lovers, Matt and Luisa, yearn to be together, despite their fathers’ apparent disapproval. The fathers, Hucklebee and Bellomy, stage a neighborly feud so that the two teenagers will fall in love on their own terms instead of being forced into an arranged marriage. The fathers hire actors and plan an elaborate abduction of Luisa. Just as it seems the parents’ scheme will work, the teenagers learn the secret and a series of conflicts arise. The power of love and the fate of the young couple are put to the test as temptation and desire confront them.

The cast features Chris Guyon as El Gallo, Erin Murphy as Luisa, Sean Chase as Matt, Ken Ernstein as Hucklebee, Dan Marsh as Bellomy, Jack Dowd as Henry, Victor Cortes as Mortimer, and Marisa Gallego as The Mute.
