The University of Adelaide Theatre Guild Student Society Presents CYRANO

Performances run 8-10 December.

The University of Adelaide Theatre Guild Student Society presents CYRANO, written by Michael Dalberg and directed by Daniella Chiarolli.

An original retelling of the French Classic by Edmond Rostand, this romantic comedy follows Cyrano, a female soldier, in a tale of unrequited love.

As she vies for the beautiful Roxane, Cyrano wrestles with self-doubt, body-shaming, and toxic masculinity in a world of 'all's fair in love and war,' armed with sword-like quips, fair friends, and more than a fair amount of pastries.

Michael Dalberg is an actor, director, and playwright headquartered in Chicago. He is an inaugural ensemble member with Theatre Above the Law, resident playwright with Three Brothers Theatre, and an ensemble member with Idle Muse Theatre Company. When not working in theatre, Michael shoots pool, and is training to become a Pokémon master.

Award-winning solo performance about women over three generations. A mystic siren calls out from distant shores to take the audience on an astral journey of healing, forgiveness, and reconciliation. The awakening of the feminine within through monologues, dance, chanting, and live music liberates a past bondage and leads to spiritual metamorphosis.

With not one, but two huge, critically-acclaimed shows in his back pocket. And, not to alarm you, but he's about to move them to his front pocket and then get them out of his pocket altogether.
