The Story

Filled with whimsy and magic, this must-see musical tells the tale of two young lovebirds from neighboring families who steal glances and keep their romance a secret from their feuding fathers. Little do the kids know that their dads are actually good friends who’ve hatched a plan—with the help of a mystical band of traveling players—to get the pair down the aisle. Honored with a Tony Award, The Fantasticks appears in the Guiness Book of Records as the world’s longest-running musical.
