The Fantasists

by Randy Wyatt

About the Play

Comedy. 45-55 minutes. 1-8 males, 2-9 females (10 performers total). Suitable for middle school and older performers, elementary and older audiences.

Premiered at The Cornservatory (Chicago, IL).


Two young wizard-storytellers compete to become Fantasists—honorable illusionists whose stories come to life. We'll meet a prince, an evil ice queen, a formidable snow lion, a rambunctious sun wolf and the Gnome-Who-Lives-in-a-Lake-but-Doesn't-Know-Why. But as perky Floriad and win-at-all-costs Somnia, forced to work together in their final test, see their tale (hilariously) fall apart, it will take every storytelling twist the acolytes know—and a few smuggled in from their mentors—to get through this ultimate battle of magic and storytelling.

"The play that I would recommend above all others is the one we did for our school production last year: The Fantasists. Genuinely hilarious, great roles and the perfect choice for a small group wanting to do a long one-act. I can't imagine a more perfect script." - Sarah Riber, Mount St. Bernard College, (Herberton, QLD, Australia)
