Based on the play Les Romanesques by Edmund Rostand
The tale of The Fantasticks is the opposite of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Whereas Romeo and Juliet's love is a forbidden love, the parents of the young couple in this tale want their children to fall in love despite their differences. During the moving tale, the young lovers become disillusioned, only to discover a more mature, meaningful love.
Audition Preparation Suggestions for The Fantasticks
Luisa's speech before the song "Much More" is overdone as an audition monologue and should be avoided. However, it may help you to study it to explore the character, and may be asked for by the audition panel in call-backs.
There are some ballet sequences that further the plot and for that reason they cannot be removed. Ballet dancers will be required.
