Hanna Theatre, Playhouse Square

The Fantasticks

Book & lyrics by Tom Jones
Music by Harvey Schmidt
Directed by Victoria Bussert
Choreographed by Gregory Daniels

Run Time: 1 hour & 54 minutes (with intermission)

A charming and romantic musical about one young couple, two "feuding" fathers and an infinite love that transcends over time, The Fantasticks whimsically whisks audiences on a journey of imagination into a world of moonlight, magic and memory. Along the way, love is found, lost and rediscovered again after a poignant realization that "without a hurt, the heart is hollow.”

Generous support for this production was provided by John and Barbara Schubert.

THE FANTASTICKS is part of the Kulas Musical Theater Series at Great Lakes Theater.
