What's Playing: Snowy Range Summer Theatre

Department of Theatre and Dance

2017 Snowy Range Summer Theatre Season

We’re proud of the long history and success of UW Summer Theatre, which at 64 years old is the second oldest program west of the Mississippi!

This summer, we are excited to produce the world's longest-running musical, THE FANTASTICKS, both locally at the Buchanan Center for the Performing Arts and also on tour throughout the State of Wyoming. 

Called "the perfect musical" by the Wall Street Journal, THE FANTASTICKS is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, two meddling parents, and a wall.

MUSICAL THE FANTASTICKS is a funny and romantic musical about a boy, a girl, two meddling parents, and a wall. The narrator, El Gallo, originally played by Jerry Orbach, asks audience members 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."

The famous score, which includes the classics "Try To Remember," "They Were You," and "Soon It's Gonna Rain," is as timeless as the story itself.

THE FANTASTICKS is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).  All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
