"The Fantasticks" in March!

Family Life Performing Arts will present "The Fantasticks" in Bath, March 10-12, and March 17-18, as a series of dinner shows and one dessert matinee.

Bring the whole family to enjoy a comfortable dinner atmosphere while savoring a four-course meal around an inviting table. After dinner, settle in as the curtain rises for “The Fantasticks” – Family Life’s presentation of the 1960 musical loosely based on the play, Les Romanesques, by Edmond Rostand.

The show is a love story reminiscent of enduring classics such as “Romeo and Juliet” and is full of breathtaking poetry. The costumes are modest, the band is small, and the set is minimal, giving “The Fantasticks” an intimate feel that engages the audience's imagination and showcases a strong ensemble cast.

“I’ve always loved this coming-of-age tale," says Family Life's Performing Arts Director, Peter Maier. "It has laugh-out-loud sections of slapstick, followed by touching, wipe-your-eyes moments. I think the audience will find this show full of refreshing substance. It entertains and reveals commonalities in all of us that push for personal and societal change.”

Dinner performances (March 10,11, 17 and 18) start at various times in the evening at Family Life. The showing on March 12 is a dessert-only matinee starting at 2:30 p.m.
