Here for a review of THE FANTASTICKS
Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt wrote The Fantasticks for
a summer theater at Barnard College. After its off-Broaway
opening in May 1960, it went on the become the longest running
production in the history of the American Broadway show.
A Beloved and classic musical, The Fantasticks tells the
story of two star-crossed lover's...or so they think. As
it turns out their fathers want them to fall in love! But
a mysterious figure known only as El Gallo may throw a wrench
into the father's plans, if they don't do it themselves
first. A story of friendship, love and growing up The Fantasticks
features classic songs such as "Try to Remember"
and "Soon It's Gonna Rain"

Portsmouth Community Theater
began in 1996. Rebecca Vickers, Priscilla Wimpress and Cindy
Killavey, the "founding mothers" hoped to emulate
the very successful Jamestown Community Theater by offering
adults and children the opportunity to experience live theater
in their own community. With their background in theater
management, performance and children who were interested
in the art, they called a meeting at the Portsmouth Free
Public Library. Over 20 people turned out with enough skills
to put on a show right then. Encouraged by this support,
they moved forward to start the theater.
In our early years, with no performance space
of our own, PCT performed at the Common Fence Point Community
Hall, St. Mary's Episcopal Church and the old Coggleshall
School Building. The stage at old Coggleshall School, former
home to Pennfield School and now used by the Aquidneck Island
Christian Academy has become the place we call "home".
The Aquidneck Island Christian Academy has no affiliation
with Portsmouth Community Theater except shared space.
Since 1996 we have produced numerous plays,
reviews, dinner theater performances and musicals giving
hundreds of adults and children the opportunity to "put
on a show".
