The Fantasticks

The Palm Beach Dramaworks, will present The Fantasticks – known around the globe as the world’s longest running musical by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt – as their summer offering, opening Friday, July 13th (8PM) for a strictly limited engagement at the new Don & Ann Brown Theatre (201 Clematis Street). Special priced preview performances are slated for July 11th& 12th with regularly scheduled curtain times through August 5th.

The Fantasticks tells the story of two neighboring fathers who trick their children into falling in love, under the believed pretense that children cannot fall in love unless that love is forbidden. The fathers construct a wall between their houses, as well as a fabricated family feud; they hire a troupe of actors to stage a fake kidnapping of daughter, Luisa so Matt can come to her rescue and in turn settle the family dispute. Of course, all things do not go according to plan!

Palm Beach Dramaworks is a non-profit, professional theatre and is a member of the Theatre Communications Group, the South Florida Theatre League, Southeastern Theatre Conference, Florida Professional Theatres Association, Florida Theatre Conference, and the Palm Beach County Cultural Council.

The performance schedule is as follows: Evening performances are Wednesday through Saturday at 8PM; Matinee performances are on Saturdays and Sundays at 2PM. Individual tickets are $55 for all performances. Student tickets are available for $10. Group rates for 20 or more, and discounted season subscriptions are also available.
