More About the Piece:

This whimsical, poignant and romantic story was created by Harvey Schmidt (music) and Tom Jones (word and lyrics).  The Fantasticks is a story narrated by El Gallo (Dillon Hughes). El Gallo opens the production with the famous song, “Try to Remember”.  He then asks the audience to use their imaginations and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic.  This is the story of Matt (Quinn Lapeyrouse) and Louisa (Lauren Leonard), neighbors, who fall in love.  Their fathers, Hucklebee (Jon Reeves) and Bellomy (Larry Hyatt) have built a wall to keep the young lovers apart.   Henry (James Matherne), Mortimer (River Olden) and The Mute (Alex Simon) assist El Gallo in telling the story of the young lovers, falling in love,  growing apart and finally find their way back to each other. Realizing the truth of El Gallo’s words “without hurt, the heart is hollow”. Vocal music director is Nicole Melancon, piano accompaniment is by Casey Haynes and Ethan Rodrigue is choreographer.
