Man of La Mancha

A Musical Presented by Halifax West High School

The Broadway award winning musical Man of La Mancha is a remarkable show and one of the great theatre successes of our time. Poet and playwright Miguel de Cervantes is awaiting trial by the Spanish Inquisition when his fellow prisoners seize and try to burn his masterpiece manuscript, Don Quxiote. To save the manuscript, he stages a poignant story of a man whose obsessive quest to attain an impossible dream takes over his mind. Don Quixote’s dream is Everyman’s dream. His tilting at windmills is Everyman’s Great Adventure. As the footlights disappear, time is telescoped and the Man of La Mancha speaks for mankind. The iconic song “To Dream the Impossible Dream” will remain in your thoughts and in your soul well after you see the show.
