THE FANTASTICKS May 3, 4, 5, 10 & 11

“Try To Remember” a time when this romantic charmer wasn’t enchanting audiences around the globe. THE FANTASTICKS is the longest-running musical in the world and with good reason: at the heart of its breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication is a purity and simplicity that transcends cultural barriers. The result is a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time.

Bellevue Society for the Arts’ 24th season continues with THE FANTASTICKS, Fridays and Saturdays, May 3, 4, 10 and 11 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, May 5 at 2 p.m.

THE FANTASTICKS is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, and their parents who try to keep them apart. 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.”

The cast includes Warren Brown, Clyde, as El Gallo; Rebekah Klepper, Sandusky, as Luisa; Matthew Burdue, Sandusky, as Matt; Brad Rowe, Bellevue, as Hucklebee; Heidi Sarvis-Sapp, Berlin Heights, as Bellomy; Ric Hills, Norwalk, as Henry; Bob Derby, Bucyrus, as Mortimer, and Alyssa Banker, Sandusky, as The Mute.

Tickets are $15 adults 18+, $10 adults 60+, and $5 under 18. Call 419-484-2787 for reservations.

THE FANTASTICKS features book and lyrics by Tom Jones, and music by Harvey Schmidt. It is based on LES ROMANESQUES by Edmond Rostand. It will be directed by Steven R. Koenig, Huron. Music Director is Wendy Brown, Clyde. Board Liaison is Marty Siegel, Bellevue. It is being produced by special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
