THE FANTASTICKS AT THE MILL THEATRE, DUNDRUM, for five performances only, Tuesday, 28th July to Saturday, 2nd August.

After its sellout run at the Mill last year in The Mill Studio this show is back by popular demand! The stage is a wooden platform, the scenery a fragile cardboard moon. There is a boy, a girl, their fathers, and a wall. It seems very little, but it is The Fantasticks, the longest-running musical production in American history, and winner of the Vernon Rice Award for "Outstanding Contribution to the Off-Broadway Theatre. The songs, Try to Remember, Soon It's Gonna Rain, Love, You are Love and They Were You buttressed by other catchy numbers throughout - would make any musical memorable. Of this production the Irish Times wrote, Clare O'Malley, Peter Brooke-Tyrell as the young couple, are "a joy, already substantial talents" and "it would be a pity to miss this nostalgic musical miniature."

Tickets 12 or 15.
