Catlaw is working as the choreographer, and Hernandez serves as the narrator, El Gallo, and the music director.
“The Fantasticks” will be performed on March 18 and March 19 at 8 p.m., and on March 20 at 6 p.m.
The cast includes Robert Stark, Sierra Shade Holland, and Claire Hill, all students at the Hudson School and residents of Hoboken. The book and lyrics are by Tom Jones, and Harvey Schmidt wrote the music for the performance.
