    THE FANTASTICKS is a 1960 musical with music by Harvey Schmidt and lyrics by Tom Jones. It tells an allegorical story, loosely based on the play The Romancers (Les Romanesques) by Edmond Rostand, concerning two neighboring fathers, who trick their children, Luisa and Matt, into falling in love by pretending to feud. The fathers hire traveling actors to stage a mock abduction, so that Matt can heroically seem to save Luisa, ending the supposed feud.

They return to each other bruised but enlightened, and they renew their vows with more maturity. Jade Leggott Nicholas directs this mad cap show. Jade is no stranger to the stage at Joplin Little Theatre directing shows, such as "INTO THE WOODS" & "MURDER AT THE HOWARD JOHNSON’S". This funny and heart-warming musical brings both seasoned actors and new
