Snowy Range Summer Theatre Presents ‘The Fantasticks’ at UW @ Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts Thrust Theatre, University of Wyoming

A sunny, funny musical about love ushers in the 64th year of the Snowy Range Summer Theatre season during a two-weekend period later this month.

“‘The Fanstasticks’ is a charming and deceptively simple little story,” Inouye says. “It’s innocent yet wise, honest yet steeped in theatrical pretense, and, for many of us, it reminds us of earlier times in our lives.”

“The Fantasticks” began as a summer theater production at Barnard College by Tom Jones (book/lyrics) and Harvey Schmidt (music). The production opened off-Broadway, opening at the Sullivan Street Playhouse in May 1960, and went on to become the longest-running production in the history of the American stage, and one of the most frequently produced musicals in the world.

Presented by the University of Wyoming Department of Theatre and Dance, the 2017 summer season features “The Fantasticks,” a family-friendly, funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, two meddling parents and a wall.

Directed by Assistant Professor Kevin Inouye, “The Fantasticks” runs June 15-17 and June 23-24 at 7:30 p.m., and also at 2 p.m. June 25 in the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts Thrust Theatre.

Tickets are $10 for the public and $7 for students, senior citizens and children over the age of 5.  Discounts are available for groups of 10 or more. For tickets and information, call (307) 766-6666 or go online at www.uwyo.edu/finearts
