October 13, 2017

Northwest Nazarene University’s Department of Communication Studies is pleased to present “The Fantasticks,” the longest-running musical in the world.

With book and lyrics by Tom Jones and music by Harvey Schmidt, this classic musical is a story about a boy, a girl, and their two fathers who try to keep them apart. The audience will be drawn into the story as the couple falls in love, falls out of love and finds each other yet again, while the narrator leads the audience on a journey through their lives. If you enjoy romance, humor and stuck-in-your-head beautiful music, then this is a production you do not want to miss.
