Mitchell College is pleased to announce resident theatre company Flock Theatre summer performances of Cyrano de Bergerac on the lawn of the Red Barn at Mitchell College, July 15-18 and July 22-25, at 7pm each night.
The play, widely-known, yet seldom seen, tells the epic tale of Cyrano de Bergerac, a remarkable French swordsman and gifted poet in the time of musketeers. Despite his dashing qualities, Cyrano’s large, protruding nose prevents him from wooing his one true love, the intellectual and beautiful Roxane. When Roxane falls for the young and handsome, yet ineloquent, Christian, Cyrano and Christian strike a deal to woo her using Cyrano’s words and Christian’s good looks. War looms over France, though, and soon the men are called to the front and the lovers’ future becomes uncertain. Cyrano De Bergerac is a hidden gem of theatre concerning dashing heroics and inner/outer beauty. It might just become one of your new favorite plays.
