Auditions At Valley Performing Arts-The Fantasticks

Directed by Dave Nufer, Valley Performing Arts

Valley Performing Arts ends their spectacular Season 40 with this timeless musical, The Fantasticks.

Audition times are: Saturday, February 20th, from 1PM to 4PM and Sunday, February 21st, from 5PM to 7PM.

This off-Broadway hit relates the tale of two neighboring fathers who trick their children, Luisa and Matt, into falling in love by pretending to feud. Unlike Romeo and Juliet, the fathers want their children to fall in love.

The fathers hire traveling actors to stage a mock abduction, so that Matt can heroically seem to save Luisa, ending the supposed feud.

When the young lovers discover the deception, they reject the arranged love match and split up. Each then gains disillusioning experiences of the real world, seen in parallel fantasy sequences.

They return to each other bruised but enlightened, and they renew their vows with more maturity.

We will be looking for: 4 males 30-70 in appearance, 2 males early to mid-20s in appearance, 1 male/female 20-50 in appearance, 1 female early to mid-20s in appearance.

If you would like to read the play script, a copy will be at the VPA office for overnight checkout.
