Anticipating the largest production in Classics’ history

2013 Classics at Brucemore Cast and Crew Announced

March 27th, 2013

The collaboration of Torchlight Theatrics and Brucemore in 1996 launched outdoor theatre in Eastern Iowa and a new venue at Brucemore. The Classics at Brucemore celebrates a rich history of quality live theatre, including Greek tragedy, Shakespearean comedy, and twentieth century American drama. Fully utilizing the natural amphitheater’s rich backdrop, actors emerge from the woods, get dunked in the pond, and help themselves to the audience members’ picnics. Characters from the show often seek help from the audience, creating an evening of hilarious and interactive fun.

Brucemore is excited to announce the cast and production team for the 2013 production of Cyrano de Bergerac, July 11 – 13 and 18 – 20, 2013 at 8:00 p.m.
