The Fantasticks is the longest-running musical in the world and with good reason. This timeless fable of love and cultural barriers is nostalgic and universal. The Fantasticks is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, and their fathers who try to keep them apart. The narrator, El Gallo, asks the audience to use their imagination and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic. The boy and the girl fall in love, grow apart and finally find their way back to each other after realizing the truth in El Gallo’s words that, “without a hurt, the heart is hollow.”
Rock of Ages Middle School Edition (Children's Summer Theatre)
Ages: 6 years old to 18 (or just graduated from high school.)
By Chris D’Arienzo
Directed by Ryan P. Mahannah
Dates: July 23-26, 2020 (Dates Subject to Change).
About the show: Rock of Ages: Middle School Edition has been adapted by industry-leaders iTheatrics. Specialists in adapting Broadway musicals for performance at elementary, middle and high school levels, iTheatrics has been behind wildly popular Disney JR and KIDS titles, and have worked their familiar, school-friendly theatrical magic on Rock of Ages. This squeaky clean adaptation of the winning Broadway rock musical is everything teachers, parents and kids love: a boy-meets-girl classic musical story set to an exciting and fun 80s rock soundtrack. What could be better?
The Story: Set on L.A.'s famous Sunset Strip in 1987, Rock of Ages tells the story of Drew, a city boy from South Detroit, and Sherrie, a small-town girl, who have both travelled to L.A. to chase their dreams of making it big and falling in love. This classic love story is set against the troubles at the Dupree Room, a “legendary temple of rock 'n' roll excellence”, under threat by developers of being torn down and replaced with a strip mall. The threats of closure bring legendary rocker Stacee Jaxx to town, and an opportunity for Drew to chase his dream to rock out with the best.
Trouble brews as Drew abandons Sherrie for his dream of stardom, rock 'n' roll bad-boy Stacee lures Sherrie away, and the Dupree Room is surrendered to developers. Can Drew and Sherrie rescue their love, and can the Dupree Room be saved, before it's too late?
