FARMINGTON — The same group that brought "Menopause the Musical" to the Farmington Civic Center is returning to the Civic Center on Wednesday to put on a musical production of "The Man of La Mancha."

"The Man of La Mancha" is based on "The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha," a novel published in 1605 by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra.

The musical tells the story of Don Quixote, an eccentric older gentleman in La Mancha, Spain who has an obsession with novels about knights. Don Quixote decides to become a knight and rides through Spain looking for adventures accompanied by his squire and friend, Sancho Panza.

"It is a very high-caliber Broadway show that we don't get to bring to Farmington very often," Lisa Hutchens, the Civic Center supervisor, said.

The show, which originated on Broadway, will be performed by a cast from artists from Columbia Artists Management Inc.

The performance will start at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Tickets start at $40 and are available at the Civic Center box office. For more information, call 505-599-1148
