Fermilab Arts Series will presents "The Fantasticks: Steam Punk Version" with the Nebraska Theater Caravan at 8 p.m. Saturday, March 15, at Fermilab's Ramsey Auditorium in Batavia. Tickets are $30 and $15 ages 18 and younger.
"Try to Remember" a time when this charming, romantic musical wasn't enchanting audiences around the world. The Fantasticks is the world's longest-running production of any kind, 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. It is a moving tale of young lovers who become disillusioned, only to discover a more mature, meaningful love. Punctuated by a bountiful series of catchy, memorable songs such as "Try to Remember" and "Soon It's Gonna Rain," audiences will find themselves humming along whether they are revisiting the show or discovering it for the first time. Through the creative genius of director Carl Beck, costume designer Georgiann Regan and scenic designer Jim Othuse, comes a steampunk-inspired adaptation of this classic musical which promises to provide an unparalleled experience, whether you are revisiting this show, or seeing it for the first time.
