BPA Theatre School presents
Cyrano de Burger Shack
August 1 – 4: Thursday & Friday @ 7:00 p.m. + Saturday & Sunday @ 3:00 p.m.
at Bainbridge Performing Arts
In Jeremy Desmon’s Pop Musical Cyrano de Burger Shack, Cyrano is king of the local Burger Shack, but he can’t seem to win the love of his best friend, Roxanne. When Roxanne confesses her crush on the new burger-flipper, Christian, Cyrano decides that playing Cupid is better than sitting out of the game. An updated, modern-day version of Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac, this rollicking musical features hit contemporary pop songs that will appeal to audience members of all ages.
BPA’s production is Directed by Buddy Todd, with Musical Direction by Crystal Johnston, and Choreography by Havilah Criss. Together, the directing trio lead an enthusiastic cast of BPA Theatre School students (ages 8 – 13). Buddy recently directed The Wizard of Oz for BPA, is choreographing Little Shop of Horrors at the Black Box Theatre in Edmonds, and looks forward to directing at Renton Civic next season. Crystal Johnston has been a classically-trained pianist for almost 30 years.
