Ticket sales are under way for the Nov. 3-12 Anne Arundel Community College Theatre at AACC fall production of “Cyrano,” an original adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s romantic classic “Cyrano de Bergerac.”
The world premiere of this adaptation takes place in the Robert E. Kauffman Theater at 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 3. Performances continue at 8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays, Nov 4-5 and Nov. 10-12, with a 2 p.m. Sunday matinee on Nov. 6.
Lars Tatom, AACC assistant professor of performing arts and Theatre at AACC coordinator, adapted “Cyrano” for a modern audience. Cyrano is renowned as the greatest swordsman and poet of his time yet he cannot see past his own oversized nose to believe that any woman, especially the beautiful Roxane, could ever love him.
Performing are Tatom (Annapolis) as Cyrano, Evann Flinchum (Severna Park) as Roxane, Rashad Ferguson (Clinton) as Christian; with cast members Erik A. Alexis (Millersville), Sean Beach (Severn), Vincent Capuano (Crofton), Anna Carter (Severn), Claire Coyle (Harwood), Kelsey Herndon (Lothian), Cliff Lytle (Churchton), Tori Reilly (Severna Park), Kelly Shaughnessy (Arnold), Kelsey Stone (Annapolis), Jerry Vess (Annapolis) and Alicia Zebron (Severna Park).
Directing is guest artist Patrick Elkins-Zeglarski of Denver, Colo., 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.
Scenery and lighting design is by Rob Berry, assistant professor of performing arts.
