Pistarckle Theater Presents “The Fantasticks”

“Try to remember the kind of September when life was slow and oh so
mellow” are the classic opening lines to the theme song of this hit
off-Broadway musical. “The Fantasticks,” by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt, is the world’s longest running musical — running for over 52 years in Manhattan and entrancing generations of audiences the world over. The famous score, which includes the classics “Try to Remember,” “They Were You” and “Soon It’s Gonna Rain,” is as timeless as the story itself.
“The Fantasticks” is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, two
fathers and a wall. The narrator, El Gallo, asks the audience to use their
imagination and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic. The boy and 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."
Box office hours are from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. On the day of the show the box office reopens at 7 p.m. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and the show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $32.50 for reserved seating and $27.50 for unreserved seating.
