"FAR AND AWAY THE BEST TREATMENT OF THIS RECORD-SETTING 52-YEAR-OLD MUSICAL THAT I'VE EVER SEEN" -Warren Francke, THE READER

"Try to Remember" a time when this charming, romantic musical wasn't enchanting audiences around the world. THE FANTASTICKS is the world's longest-running production of any kind, and with good reason: at the heart of its breathtaking poetry and subtle theatrical sophistication is a purity and simplicity that transcends cultural barriers. The result is a timeless fable of love that manages to be nostalgic and universal at the same time. It is a moving tale of young lovers who become disillusioned, only to discover a more mature, meaningful love. Punctuated by a bountiful series of catchy, memorable songs such as Try to Remember and Soon It's Gonna Rain, audiences will find themselves humming along whether they are revisiting the show or discovering it for the first time. Through the creative genius of Director Carl Beck, Costume Designer Georgiann Regan and Scenic Designer Jim Othuse, comes a steampunk-inspired adaptation of this classic musical which promises to provide an unparalleled experience, whether you are revisiting this show, or seeing it for the first time.

The Nebraska Theatre Caravan was founded in 1975 as a joint project between the Omaha Playhouse and the Nebraska Arts Council. The original 12-week program soon became a full time touring program, and in its second season was playing to 45,000 people in 37 communities. In 1979 the Caravan started touring the Charles Jones adaptation of A Christmas Carol nationally with one company touring the Midwest. Three years later in 1982 another company was added to tour the East Coast and a third to tour the West Coast in 1987. Since its inception the Nebraska Theatre Caravan has produced 90 fully mounted productions, many of which were new works.
