El Paso Community College (EPCC) Theater Ensemble will offer its next play of 2016 season with The Fantasticks.
The Fantasticks tells the story of two neighboring fathers who trick their children, Matt and Luisa, into falling in love by pretending to feud. With the father’s intentions of getting Matt to heroically save Luisa, they hire traveling actors to stage a mock abduction, ending the fake feud between their fathers.
When the two children become aware of the deception, they end the arranged match and separate. The rest of the story tells how the two renew their vows with more maturity.
Performances will be September 29, 30, October 1, 6, 7 and 8 at 8:00 pm and October 2 and 9 at 2:30 p.m. The EPCC Theater Ensemble performs at the EPCC Forum Theater (9570 Gateway North)
