Auditions for The Fantasticks

MESA ENCORE THEATRE
Presents

The Fantasticks
Director: KatiBelle Collins

“Try to Remember” a time when this romantic charmer wasn’t enchanting audiences around the world. THE FANTASTICKS is the longest-running musical in the worlda natural choice for the longest-running Community Theatre in Arizona!—and with good reason. At the heart of its breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication is a purity and simplicity that transcends cultural barriers. The result is a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time.
