The Fantasticks The Chaffey College Theatre Department Spring Production
Musical Direction by Patrick Aranda
Directed by Kelly Ford - Kaminski
Chaffey College Theatre
March 3, 4, and 5 at 7:30pm; March 6 at 2:00pm
The stuff of musical theatre legend, The Fantasticks is the longest running theatrical production in history. 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". At the heart of it all is breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication with 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.
Tickets are $15.00 dollars and available at the Chaffey College Bookstore.
