The Fantasticks

The world’s longest-running musical, The Fantasticks is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, and their two fathers who try to keep them apart. The narrator, El Gallo, asks the audience to use their imagination and follow him into a world of moonlight and magic. The boy and the girl fall in love, grow apart and finally find their way back to each other after realizing the truth in El Gallo's words that, "without a hurt, the heart is hollow."

David Edwards and J.C. Hoyt previously played these roles in the legendary off-Broadway run at the Sullivan Street Playhouse. Edwards played El Gallo in over 500 performances over three years in the original production, and was featured in the 2003 documentary Try To Remember: The Fantasticks.

Artful Explorations of Activism

Artivism

As a universal language, the arts have always been an effective tool for addressing social issues. Artivism or "activist art" is a form of social protest that explores cultural and political concerns. However, it is much more than just an innovative tactic, Artivism involves an entire practice that attempts to inspire positive change in society. This juried exhibition will feature works of art that employ spectacle, symbolism and collective participation to fight for issues of social justice including racial discrimination, gender equality, fair labor practices, human rights and more.
