Director Krista Schwarting and Actor Jenson Seifert came by to talk about two things - to reinforce that Cyrano's has a new location, and a play running through November 19th. The location is 3800 Debarr Road, with the nearest major intersection of Debarr and Bragaw.
The play, The 39 Steps, is a comic adaptation of a classic film from the 1930s and based loosely on a 1915 era classic book.
Schwarting says the treatment given by playwright Patrick Barlow not only breathes new life into the 100-year old story, but also converts it into a comedy.
If you've seen Schwarting's previous work as a director, you know this play will be entertainment worth stepping out for.
In contrast to Schwarting's leadership, relatively new actor Jenson Seifert plays Richard Hannay, the main character who, true to the originals, gets more than he bargains for after saying his life is boring. With fast action and settings, that require a lot of work to pull off, Seifert credits his fellow cast members for give him the space to fill his character. "One of the scenes is on a train, another he's getting shot at in a Scottish bog..."
An added layer of fun, the Cyrano's website has a list of Hitchcock film reference Easter eggs -
which may function as an additional way to participate for film buffs.
With addition of Saturday Matinees, Schwarting says, "Come on in and bring the kids,"
7 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays.
Matinees: Saturday, Nov. 11 & Nov. 18 shows at 2 PM
