     It is my great hope that lots of local producers will see this exquisite production and that they will cast these artists in LOTS of upcoming shows. The Colorado audience deserves to be ravished by this kind of magical artistry.
     Brenda Billings' direction of "THE FANTASTICKS" for Miners Alley Playhouse is outstanding!  Her casting is impeccable.
     Mark Lively(Matt), Jacquie Jo Billings(Luisa) and Rory Pierce(El Gallo) provide us with vocals that are magnificent. Mr. Lively's electrifying performance of "I Can See It" will lift you right out of your seat! BRAVO!

                            RORY PIERCE(above) and MARK LIVELY

     Jacquie Jo Billings has a soprano that is quite simply one of the best in the region. Mr. Pierce needs to be cast in LOTS more musicals. His acting and singing of the part of El Gallo stuns!
                                RORY PIERCE AS EL GALLO

   The fathers, the old actor, the man who dies and the mute are brought to life by some truly fine artists. They are: Tim Fishbaugh, Steve Klein, Don Deveux, Clark Brittain and Bryanna Scott.
   Mitch Samu’s music direction and conducting of the onstage band is masterful. Samu ‘s piano, Tag Worley’s drums and Burt Singleton’s Bass make the instrumentation an auditory delight. However… it’s Don Hilsberg’s playing of the gorgeous onstage harp that really conjures the magic.
      Vance McKenzie’s lighting is superb!
      If you've never had the chance to be enchanted this superb ensemble is just the ticket!
      Runs through June 29...and SHOULD BE EXTENDED!!!!
