PHAMALY is excited to announce its first-ever “for the road” play, Cyrano, a family-friendly adaptation of the play Cyrano de Bergerac, enjoyable for all ages.
Cyrano de Bergerac is a master of swordplay and wordplay, but a “magnificent Mount Everest of a nose” blocks his path to true love. From Parisian balconies to bloody battlefields, tongue-tied Christian borrows Cyrano’s words to woo beautiful Roxane—but is she falling for Christian’s looks or Cyrano’s soul? A cast of three actors triangulates this classic into a lightning-paced romance of duels, panache, sacrifice—and an enormous schnoz.
The cast includes Leonard E Barrett Jr as Cyrano; Daniel Traylor as Christian; Jenna Bainbridge as Roxane; and Briana Berthiaume as an understudy for all three roles.
PHAMALY’s Executive Director, Chris Silberman, says, “This is an important milestone for PHAMALY to finally present the great theatre we have been performing for 23 years to residents of Colorado who live outside of the Denver Metro region. We hope to create a new touring production annually, which gives PHAMALY performers with disabilities more opportunities to showcase their talents on stage for new audiences, and opens those new audiences’ eyes to what can be possible.”
Cyrano will begin its tour at the Broomfield Auditorium, 3 Community Park Road, Broomfield on March 15 at 7:00 p.m. in a free community performance sponsored by the Scientific & Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) and the Broomfield Council on the Arts & Humanities.
The play will then cross the state to the town of Crested Butte to the Center for the Arts on March 25– another first for PHAMALY. Other dates across the state are planned through fall of this year and will be announced in the coming months.
