Auditions are set for Sept. 12 and Sept. 13 for the Anne Arundel Community College Theatre at AACC fall production of “Cyrano,” a new adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s romantic classic “Cyrano de Bergerac.”
Adapted by Lars Tatom, AACC assistant professor of performing arts and Theatre at AACC coordinator, “Cyrano” will be directed by special guest artist Patrick Elkins-Zeglarski, who has teaching and directing credits from around the country. Elkins-Zeglarski earned a bachelor’s degree in Theater Education from the University of Northern Iowa and a Master of Fine Arts degree in Theater Education from Arizona State University.
This adaptation follows the storyline of the strong-willed Cyrano de Bergerac, who is a gifted poet, talented musician and remarkable duelist. His extremely large nose is the cause of his self-doubt, which prevents him from expressing his love for the beautiful and intellectual heiress Roxane. He believes his ugliness denies him the dream of being loved.
Roles for 12-15 actors are available; the role of Cyrano is precast. Scripts are available for checkout at 410-777-7125. Auditions begin at 7 p.m. both days in the Robert E. Kauffman Theater in the Pascal Center for Performing Arts on the Arnold campus, 101 College Parkway. Come to one of the two audition dates. Callbacks will take place Wednesday, Sept. 14.
Rehearsals will start Wednesday, Sept. 21, with performances Nov. 3-12. For information contact Tatom at 410-777-7125 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
