Presenting: Our first ever Acrosstown Youthtroupe Production: The Fantasists by Randy Wyatt!
Take a trip with us into a world that seems as familiar as Hogwarts and Narnia, rife with all the fairy-tale tropes and trappings– like evil ice queens, snow lions, and wizarding contests– and then take a left turn at Albuquerque and you’ll be at our production of Randy Wyatt’s The Fantasists.
Two students who aspire to be Fantasists– storyteller-wizards who can bring their stories to life– match wits in a battle royale for the title. But these contests are never as simple as they seem, are they? When their stories’ characters have their own aspirations perky Floriad and competitive Somnia will be forced to work together in their final test. Will either or both succeed? And why doesn’t the-Gnome-Who-Lives-in-a-Lake-but-Doesn’t-Know-Why know why he lives in a lake?
This clever, magical story is guaranteed to please children of all ages (especially the ones who have to go to work for a living), and will be the inaugural performance of ARTY– The Acrosstown Repertory Theatre Youthtroupe.
Performances are Friday and Saturday, June 12 and 13, at 7:00 PM.
Tickets are $12 for adults, $6 for students (under 18) and can be purchased online using the links below.
A limited number of tickets will be available at the door starting 30 minutes before curtain, cash only, please.
