A Take on Cyrano from Peter Coy

Boomie Pedersen just sent the information below.  It is always exciting to witness the birth of a play.  I am hoping to squeeze this into my theatre  going schedule this weekend and see how it is shaping up.

See you at the theatre!


Blustery Spring Greetings from the Hamner Theater!
“Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night, stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”  Thus said Herodotus in 503 BC but he might well have been speaking of this production of MOSTLY CYRANO, or in fact of any production of a brand new play.  So much is unknown, so much is unexpected and then there are the curve balls hurled by life and nature…but we have persisted and proudly present MOSTLY CYRANO, a brand new play by Peter Coy, directed by the playwright.  This is a joint production with PlayOn! Theatre and we are delighted to be collaborating with our friends at the IX Building.
Opening this Friday, March 15 and running through Sunday, March 24, MOSTLY CYRANO features an ensemble cast of 8 actors – Kate Adamson, Christian Anderson, Allison Bowers, Pam Burke, Koli Cutler, Corey Johnson, Kevin O’Donnell and Ken Valentine are the company that has been charged with putting on a production of Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac.
Performances are at 8pm Thursday through Saturday and at 2pm on Sundays.  Tickets ($14 – $18) are available in advance through the PlayOn! website (www.playontheater.org) and at the door.  Seating is general admission – the house will open 30 minutes before curtain. For questions please call the PlayOn! Box Office at 434-872-0184.
MOSTLY CYRANO is a new play in development and your response will help the playwright have a real sense of how his play works and help him as he works toward the next iteration of the script.  There will be a post-performance talkback after the first Sat. show (March 16) and the second Friday show (March 22).  Please come be part of the conversation!
Spring is on its way at last…make a trip to the theater part of your celebration!www.CVTA.info will tell you where all the performances are.
