Event description

Description

ACT 1 is thrilled to invite you to Edmond Rostand's The Romancers, the second show of our 30th season.

Synopsis: Our story is a well known one. Two families with adjoining properties and a young man and woman fall in love even though their fathers are bitter enemies. But, it turns out the fathers are secretly friends trying to get their families joined together. So, they hire Straforel to fake an abduction of the daughter so the young man can “save” her and be the hero, thereby solidifying their commitment to each other. And that’s exactly what happens.. sort of... eventually.

Production info: The Romancers is by Edmond Rostand, author of Cyrano de Bergerac. It’s an homage to the commedia dell'arte style of theater and is usually performed with broad, archetype characters dressed in Louis XVI style costumes and masks. Our production will modernize this to use video game and anime/animation styles instead of the traditional look. If you like cosplay, video games, cartoons, anime, The Princess Bride, Shakespeare, Scott Pilgrim vs the World, or commedia dell'arte theater, you’re going to want to see this play.

The Romancers is directed by Scott Hutcheson and features Caroline Conner, Kathy Crisp, Taylor Foster, Beth Henderson, Sara Kistner, Emmanuelle Loyer, Joy Pointe, and Tori Simpson.

Performances are at 7:30pm for the January 11th-12th, 17th-19th, and 24th-26th evening performances, with a 2:30pm matinee on January 13th and 20th.

Please note: Our Thursday show is pay-what-you-can, and students (college and high school) get in free on Sundays. To take advantage of either special, please buy your tickets at the door, not in advance.
