Valley Shakespeare Festival presents “Cyrano” In The Park LIVE!
Location: Shelton, CT
Date: September 3-7, 2020
What: Valley Shakespeare Festival is presenting a live performance of Cyrano, for a four night run. Join us in the park for a socially distanced but live performance. Run Time: 75 minutes, no intermission. Bring a sweater, as it will get cold on the Riverwalk during this time of year. Cyrano de Bergerac is a master of swordplay and wordplay, but a “magnificent Mount Everest of a nose” blocks his path to true love. From Parisian balconies to bloody battlefields, tongue-tied Christian borrows Cyrano’s words to woo beautiful Roxane, but is she falling for Christian’s looks or Cyrano’s soul? A cast of three triangulates this classic, live, into a lightning-paced romance of duels, panache, sacrifice, and one enormous schnoz.

A Movie Experience Worth the Trip

However, just over the hill and through the woods in Warwick NY there is a dedicated drive-in theatre. The drive is completely worth it. Every night is a double feature, with great movies playing right now like Deadpool, The New Mutants, and this summer’s latest release Bill and Ted Face the Music. The Warwick Drive-In Theater is located at 5 Warwick Turnpike in Warwick, NY. Tickets are $2 per adult (ages 12+) and $8 per child (ages 4-11) which includes the double feature if you choose to stay. Grab dinner in Warwick before hunkering down for an awesome movie experience that the whole family will love.).
