Mark Fields Davidson has been cast as "Death Scenes" Mortimer in The Fantasticks.

Theatre Palisades is pleased to announce the fantastic cast for our next production of the 2017 season, "The Fantasticks," which owns the distinction of being the world's longest running musical in history. 

The cast features Greg Abbott (Hucklebee), Mark Davidson (Mortimer), Jeff DeWitt (The Mute), Drew Fitzsimmons (El Gallo), Darin Greenblatt (Bellomy), Jeremiah Lussier (Matt), Giane Morris (Luisa), and Michael-Anthony Nozzi (Henry).

The show will be directed by Sherman Wayne, a longtime Theatre Palisades member and current Vice President of Production, who spent eight years as company manager with the original off-Broadway production of "The Fantasticks." Vicki Miller is choreographer; Brian Murphy, musical director. The producer is Martha Hunter.

The plot revolves around "the deceptively simple story of a boy, a girl, and their fathers -- who plot to get them together by keeping them apart." We hope you'll join us for this all-time classic, with music by Harvey Schmidt and lyrics by Tom Jones, which includes such memorable songs as "Try to Remember," "Soon It's Gonna Rain," and "Plant a Radish."

"The Fantasticks" will run weekends, Sept. 1 - Oct. 8. For information and reservations, phone the box office, (310) 454-1970.
