F.C. Residents Take the Stage in ‘The Fantasticks’

Falls Church residents Michael Schlesinger and Donna Naybor will be acting in Vienna Theatre Company’s production of “The Fantasticks.”

The play, which opened last Friday, tells the story of two fathers who scheme to trick their son and daughter into falling in love by hiring El Gallo to arrange an attempted abduction of the girl, Louisa, and allowing the boy, Matt, to save her. All goes as planned until Matt feels limited by his life and leaves to explore the world. After experiencing the dangers and risks of the world, Matt returns to Louisa.

Schlesinger plays El Gallo, and Naybor plays The Mute.

The show runs through May 6 at the Vienna Community Center, 120 Cherry St. SE, Vienna. For more information, visit
