At Opera House The longest running theatrical pro- duction in New YorkCity is The Fan- tasticks, still playing at the off- Broadway Sullivan Street Theatre, where it originally ~ened May 3, 1959. It celebrated 25 continuous years in 1964 and on May 13th of that year pass- ed its 10,000th performance. This happy mock-romantic musical success will be presented at The Old Opera House for two weekends star- ting March 15 and ending March 24, and will usher in the local company's 1985 season. With book and lyrics by Tom Jones, based on a half forgotten harlequinade by Edmond Rostand, and with a tuneful score by Harvey Schmidt, The Fantasticks is a retell- ing of the Pierrot and Columbine story of the boy and girl who fall in love, spoil their love and then come to a new appreciation of each other and final happiness. Amanda Raines and Barry Har- baugh will portray this pair whose wooing is especially romantic because it is forbidden. Their fathers, played by Bill Moore, Jr and AI Rupel are neighbors and friends who hope for a match of their children, and have pro- moted it by pretending to an angry feud, believing that children will always do what they are told not to do. The narrator, who also involves himself in the story will be played by Stephen King. Also in the cast will he Bob Willgoos as a tottering old Shakespearean actor who keeps garbl- ing the famous lines of the bard and Clayton Carey will portray another ac- tor with a specialty of being able to die effectively.
