Now Playing This Month
​​Special Meeting​​
Sep 18th
From the President's column in the September BackStage newsletter:

We want to let the theatre community know that the S.T.A.R. Foundation would like to facilitate the creation of a shared costume storage facility and workspace. Many of our local theatre companies, including PacRep and MPC have storage facilities at Fort Ord that are not ideal. Climate control and security are major issues. Vintage clothing is deteriorating in moist environments. Reg Huston will be hosting an informational meeting about this project on September 18 from 3:00 to 5:00 pm at MPC’s Studio Theatre. He is hoping to have the support of MCTA’s Producers for this project, along with many of the local high school theatre departments.

  Cyrano  by Edmond Rostand • Translated and Adapted by Michael Hollinger and Aaron Posner 
 
With its original setting and the glorious costumes of 17th century France, this classic romantic comedy has been given a 21st century snappy modern adaptation. Cyrano tells the story of a great swordsman with a beautiful soul, who is hampered by a huge nose that makes him believe he is incapable of being loved by the beautiful Roxane. When he learns that Roxane and a handsome young soldier named Christian are infatuated with each other, he writes beautiful love letters for her suitor that lead to a calamitous love triangle. An ensemble cast of nine actors brings a rollicking theatricality to this epic tale. Filled with swordplay, romance and amped-up humor, this is the funniest Cyrano you will ever see!
