Priscilla Beach Theatre proudly presents the romantic comedy musical, “The Fantasticks,” June 5-14 in the GMo Black Box Theatre at PBT, 800 Rocky Hill Road, Plymouth.

A funny and romantic story, revolving around a boy and a girl who fall in love, grow apart, and eventually return to each other, the show includes the well-known songs “Try to Remember,” “Soon It’s Gonna Rain” and more. “The Fantasticks,” with book and lyrics by Tom Jones and music by Harvey Schmidt, is the longest running musical in the world.

According to the show’s director Theresa Chiasson, “The Fantasticks is completely endearing, and our intimate setting in the GMo is ideal. But the most important element is that we have a strong cast, which features two of our own young PBT actors, Haley Robertson and Zein Karam.” Owner Bob Malone added that, “both of these students have participated in our summer workshops for several years. We are all so proud to see them take the stage in a main season production with talented actors from throughout the area. It’s very rewarding and exciting.”

The Fantasticks is on stage at PBT on June 5, 6, 12, and 13 at 7:30 p.m. and June 7 and 14 at 2:00 p.m. PBT’s cast includes Tyler Cavanagh and John Duff of Hanover, Daniel Goldstone of Wellesley, Jonathan Markella of Duxbury, and Haley Robertson, ZeinKaram, Jack Craib and Chris Bailey all of Plymouth.
