Gallery 7 Theatre concludes its season with the musical sensation The Fantasticks.

Considered the longest running musical in theatre history, The Fantasticks tells the timeless story of young love, innocence, and self-discovery.

“I’m so thrilled to see that such an incredibly talented group of theatre artists, both on and off the stage, has been assembled to bring this production to life,” said the theatre’s executive artistic director, Ken Hildebrandt.

The story of love plays out as young sweethearts enjoy innocent bliss and romance. When they discover their courtship is the result of the manipulations of their two fathers, the seeds of rebellion are sown and the temptations of the world threaten to pull them apart forever.

The Fantasticks runs June 8-9, 14-16 and 21-23 at  7:30 p.m. with additional discounted matinees on June 9 and 16 at 2 p.m. at the MEI Auditorium, 4081 Clearbrook Rd.

Tickets are available at the House of James, 2743 Emerson St, Abbotsford, or by calling 604-852-3701 or toll free at 1-800-665-8828.
