On Dec. 4, the UC Davis Department of Theatre and Dance will debut its fall musical, The Fantasticks, at Wyatt Theatre. The musical is directed by staff member Kathy Morison and will mark the department’s first holiday-themed production.
The Fantasticks is a 1960s musical loosely adapted from Edmond Rostand’s play The Romancers, and features music by Harvey Schmidt and words by Tom Jones. The show’s original off-Broadway production, which ran a total of 42 years, holds the record for the world’s longest-running musical. The story tells the tale of Luisa and Matt, two young lovers whose parents trick them into falling in love by trying to keep them apart.
