'The Fantasticks' Synopsis

The Fantasticks, a whimsical, poignant, and romantic, production, is an allegorical story that focuses on two young lovers, their meddling fathers, and the journey we all must take through adolescent thrills: the growing pains of hurt and betrayal, the highs of passion, the challenges of distance, and the agonies of heartbreak to discover how to truly love.

Critical Acclaim

“The truly gripping love story of “The Fantasticks” is not that of the Boy and Girl at the plot’s center but of the undying affection lavished on this bauble of a musical by Mr. Jones and Mr. Schmidt, who through sheer devotion and tenacity turned it into the Little Show That Wouldn’t Die.” - NY Times

Conservatory of Theatre Arts

Part of Webster University's Leigh Gerdine College of Fine Arts, the Conservatory of Theatre Arts is a professional training program for acting, musical theatre, directing, theatre studies and dramaturgy, design, technical theatre and stage management.

The Conservatory selects students through auditions and theatre festivals nationwide, and also hosts auditions on campus. All candidates for admission must complete the audition/portfolio review process to be considered.

One of the distinguishing elements of Webster's Conservatory is its integrated association with professional theatre companies, two of which are located on campus: The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis and Opera Theatre of Saint Louis.
