Davis Shakespeare Festival Summer 2016

Davis Shakespeare Festival Summer 2016

Presented by Davis Shakespeare Ensemble at Veterans' Memorial Center Theatre - Davis

The Davis Shakespeare Festival, returning for its 7th year, is proud to announce its 2016 Festival opening with Cyrano de Bergerac and Bells Are Ringing in repertory at the Veterans Memorial Theatre. The Davis Shakespeare Festival is one of the region’s premiere theatre festivals, providing the community with a local and unique theatre experience.

Cyrano de Bergerac features one of the most renowned characters of all time. Cyrano is excellent with a sword, brilliant with language, and has that famous nose. Written in 1897 by Edmond Rostand, Cyrano de Bergerac is an enduring classic, elevated further by Anthony Burgess' hilarious translation. Do not miss this epic adventure full of beautiful language and daring battles, all in the name of love.

Originally written for the phenomenal and hilarious Judy Holliday, Bells Are Ringing follows the story of Ella Peterson, a disgruntled telephone-operator who longs for something more in life. Bells Are Ringing premiered on Broadway in 1956, and later into a movie in 1960 featuring Holliday and Dean Martin. Bells Are Ringing is mistakenly under-produced; we are thrilled to be able to share this wonderful romantic comedy that will steal your hearts.
