Fall Musical: The Fantasticks

WHAT: The University Theatre’s fall production is a musical entitled The Fantasticks, a classical musical that ran on Broadway for 42 consecutive years. Alumni Buddy Todd has returned from Seattle to direct the show. Carolyn Jess, a well-known accompanist in the area, is the Musical Director.

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 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.”
