It's a good idea to get early and score seats up front. We thought we did, but then a couple decided to sit down right in front of us in packable chairs!

We had a really nice time at this new production. There are bleachers and open grass areas where you can put down a blanket or place your own chair. The local crowd thinks nothing of blocking your view, so I recommend chairs. The play itself was...continued

The gorgeous language is enough. Several strong actors and a lovely, very relaxed setting.

Description

By Edmond Rostand

A timeless tale of courage, honor and unrequited love. Featuring Artistic Director Jack Hickey as Cyrano, France’s greatest warrior and poet, who is in love with the beautiful Roxanne. Cyrano’s legendarily large nose, however, causes him to doubt that he could ever win her love, leading him to court her by proxy, through the handsome yet vapid Christian. Cyrano is a beautiful, funny and touching story filled with swordfights, romance, and laughter; and brimming with Rostand’s beautiful poetry.
