Palm Canyon Theatre (PCT) is presenting the classic story of “unrequited” love, Cyrano de Bergerac. While the film version is currently playing at the movie theatres, here’s your opportunity to see the live production on stage. The production runs for four nights only, March 31 through April 3.
Set in 1640 Paris, Edmond Rostand’s romantic drama tells the story of a gifted poet and swordsman, Cyrano de Bergerac, with self-doubts and insecurities when it comes to his own prowess. Despite possessing many talents and a brilliant mind, the size of his nose has him believing that he is not worthy of love and therefore unable to profess his love for the beautiful and intelligent Roxane.
Meanwhile, the Baron Christian de Neuvillete, whose handsome face compensates for his lack of wit and intellect, sets out to win the heart of the lady Roxane. Cyrano’s lack of confidence prompts him to instead help Christian court Roxane, by wooing her with his words, as though they were written by Christian, even though they were really written by Cyrano himself.
Cyrano de Bergerac is directed by PCT founder Dr. William J. Layne. The principal cast members include: Michael Pacas as Cyrano, Katrina Dixon as Roxane, and Cameron Keys as Christian.
Cyrano de Bergerac runs March 31-April 3, 2022. Show times are 7 p.m. on Thursdays, 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. on Sundays. Tickets are $29.50 and $15.00 for Students.
