Aaron Carter Starring in Off-Broadway's 'The Fantasticks'

Aaron Carter is joining the cast of the Off-Broadway production The Fantasticks.

The 23-year-old singer will take on the role of Matt, currently played by Matt Leisy, who will now play The Mute.

“Never in the 51-year-history of The Fantasticks have we opted to cast someone with Aaron Carter’s level of fame, instead quietly enjoying our reputation for giving many future stars their first professional performing gig,” writer Tom Jones in a statement (via Playbill).

“But when I saw the level of enthusiasm, professionalism and sheer talent Aaron brought to us, I knew that he would be an incredibly exciting addition to The Fantasticks family,” he added.

Aaron‘s run will kick off November 7 at NYC’s Snapple Theatre Center!
