Come See Our Fall Show!
Join the Winchester Players as they present 'The Fantasticks' hailed as the longest running show in American theater history. The production is Directed by Russell R. Green with Musical Direction by Ian Chin, and Choreography by Theresa A. Melito. The show, with Book and Lyrics by Tom Jones and Music by Harvey Schmidt, offers the audience a memorable score, rollicking choreography, delightful humor, and enchanting romance.
The ensemble cast stars Allan Hunter as El Gallo, Alissa Mott as Luisa, Taylor Hilliard as Matt, Renee Miller as Hucklebee, Dan Moore as Bellomy, Paul D'Onofrio as Mortimer, Peter Ambler as The Old Actor, and Rachel Fennell as The Mute.
Russell Greene, our Director, who loves the show, has been quoted as saying "The show celebrates life, love, creativity, and the human condition and does it in such a simple and effective way. It should be seen by everyone, every few years, to be reminded you don't need flying spidermen, or good and bad witches, or huge video screens to be entertained and transported. Sometimes you just need a crate full of props and characters, a platform, and a cardboard moon."
Tickets at $25/$23 for seniors and students are available by clicking the 'Tickets' link above, at Book Ends in Winchester Center, and at the door. Opening night, November 8, will be a Cabaret Performance, complete with wine and cheese, to benefit the Jenks Senior Center. All tickets for this performance only are $30. Come! Experience the music, laughter, magic, and moonlight of this timeless show.

The enduring, American drama by Tennessee Williams
In Tennessee Williams' shattering classic, an aging Southern Belle longs for her youth and dreams of a better life for her children. Her restless son Tom, a would-be poet and the story's narrator-gets swept up in his mother's funny and heartbreaking schemes to find his painfully shy sister, Laura, a husband.
