McAllen, TX – South Texas College (STC) Theatre presents Jo Roets’ adaptation of Cyrano, from a play by Edmond Rostand and translated into English by Audry Van Tuyckom.
The Production will run from Feb. 20-22 at 7:30 p.m. and will include a matinee at 2 p.m. on Feb. 23. Performances will take place at STC’s Cooper Center for Communication Arts Main Stage Theatre located at 3201 W. Pecan Blvd. in McAllen.
In Roet’s Cyrano, Cyrano de Bergerac is a master of swordplay and wordplay, but his magnificent nose blocks his path to true love. From Parisian balconies to bloody battlefields, tongue-tied Christian borrows Cyrano’s words to woo his love interest, the beautiful Roxane – but is she falling for Christian’s looks or Cyrano’s soul? Three actors perform this classic into a fast-paced romance of duels, panache, sacrifice – and an enormous nose.
General admission tickets cost $10. Student, faculty, military, and senior citizen are $5. Ticket sales from the Feb. 20 production will go towards the Dr. John F. Carroll Drama Scholarship. The Feb. 23 matinee production will be interpreted in American Sign Language.
Tickets can be purchased with cash or check one hour before the performance at the box office, or in advance online using a credit or debit card at www.southtexascollege.edu/go/theatre.
