Two fathers set up their children as lovers, though the children don't know that, in the musical The Fantasticks. The fathers pretend to feud then stage a mock abduction with a group of traveling actors. The children end up falling for each other. If the ruse is discovered, however, relationships could be seriously strained.
Tom Jones created the lyrics and Harvey Schmidt created the music for The Fantasticks, which Debbie Endris directed and choreographed. Dan Endris provided musical direction.
