Frostburg State University Theatre Season Too! will present the musical favorite "The Fantastiks" on Friday, Feb. 22 and Saturday, Feb. 23, at 8 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center's Drama Theatre.
The world's must frequently produced musical, "The Fantastiks" is also the longest running show in American theatre, with a debut date of May 3, 1960 and closed recently in New York on January 13. This simple work speaks of the pain of growing up and does so with exquisite craftsmanship that is as full of theatrical magic as any show in American musical theatre.
Audiences of all ages return to see it. Several songs, including "Try to Remember" and "Soon it's Gonna Rain" have become standards. The score is by Harvey Schmidt, with lyrics by Tom Jones.
Justin Seward, a senior majoring in theatre, will direct this production, which is part of FSU's student-directed series, Season Too!
Tickets cost $3 and reservations can be made Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. by calling (301) 687-7462.
FSU is committed to making all of its programs, services and activities accessible to persons with disabilities. You may request accommodations through the ADA Compliance Office, (301) 687-4102, TDD (301) 687-7955.
