The Fantasticks (Play) Ernest Parham, Jon Finlayson, Alan Hopgood

Union Theatre  Melbourne 1962  Playbill / Program


The Fantasticks is a 1960 musical with music by Harvey Schmidt and lyrics by Tom Jones. It tells an allegorical story, loosely based on the play “The Romancers” (“Les Romanesques”) by Edmond Rostand, concerning two neighbouring fathers who trick their children, Luisa and Matt, into falling in love by pretending to feud.

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 children discover the deception, they reject the arranged love match and separate. 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.
