Moravian College Theatre Company to Present The Fantasticks

Bethlehem, Pa., October 29, 2007—The Moravian College Theatre Company will open its 2007/08 season with Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt’s record-shattering musical The Fantasticks.  The production will run for five performances in the Arena Theatre at Moravian College: Thursday, Friday and Saturday, November 1-3, at 8 p.m., with matinees on Saturday and Sunday, November 3- 4 at 2 p.m. A classic coming-of-age story, The Fantasticks features two meddling, matchmaking fathers who scheme to get their children together. But once the couple is united, the real drama begins! The Fantasticks is a celebration of love: first love, lost love, and, ultimately, true love.

The cast will feature Adam Spaugh’05; Kimberly Porcino ’10 (Lebanon, N.J); Rob Hercik ’09; Josh Beri’09 (Roswell, Ga.); Chris Hoagland ’11 (Willow Grove, Pa.); Dan Sigley ’68 Bethlehem, Pa.; Aaron Bach ’10 (East Brunswick, N.J.); Jessica Croll ’09 (Red Hill, Pa.); Becky Kolacki ’10 (Blue Point, N.Y.).  Barbara Liebhaber, Ed.D. serves as musical director/pianist with Kelly Schmidt as her assistant musical director, and Cheryl Cunningham as harpist. William F. Bauman has staged the production. Lighting design is by Peter Leonard. Louis Baio serves as stage manager.

General admission tickets are $18; senior citizens and students are $15. Reduced rates are available for groups of 10 or more.  For further information or ticket reservations, call 610-861-1489.  
The purpose of the Moravian College Theatre Company is to enrich the liberal arts education by producing two or three productions each year that present significant dramatic literature of the past and present and that provide students with opportunities to participate in all aspects of play production.
