The Fantasticks is a 1960 musical by Harvey Schmidt and lyrics by Tom Jones. It tells the story concerning two neighboring fathers who trick their children into falling in love by pretending to feud. The fathers hire traveling actors to stage a mock abduction, so that the man can heroically seem to save the woman, ending the 'feud'. When the children discover the deception, they reject the arranged love match and separate. Each then gains disillusioning experiences of the real world, seen in parallel fantasy sequences. They return to each other bruised but enlightened, and they renew their vows with more maturity.
