audition notice - THE FANTASTICKS - Mesa Encore Theatre - February 19


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 world—a 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.

Cast of Characters:
El Gallo – (25-35)-(Bass/Baritone) The Narrator/The Bandit
Luisa – (16-23)-(Soprano) The Girl
Matt – (20-27)-(Tenor) The Boy

Bellomy – (40-60)-(Baritone) The Girls Father

FOR THE ABOVE 5 roles please prepare and bring with you 16-32 bars from two contrasting songs along the style of the show.
