(April 27, 2011)--The UTSA Department of English Drama Through Performance Troupe will present "Cyrano De Bergerac" at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 29 and Saturday, April 30 in the Business Building Liu Auditorium Room (2.01.12) on the UTSA Main Campus.
The classic tragic story tells the tale a soulful poet/philosopher and expert duelist named Cyrano who falls in love with Roxanne, but is ashamed to woo her because of his huge nose. Instead he writes love letters for slow-witted, but handsome Christian in order to win her hand for him. She falls deeply in love with the author, but doesn't know they were written by Cyrano.
The play is directed by UTSA English Faculty member Susan Arias and produced by UTSA English Associate Professor Bridget Drinka.
Cast and crew members include Matthew Underwood, Marisa Creech, Eric Repp, Stephen Young, Kristin DeGroot, Armando Urdiales, Jacob Holmes, Andy Contreras, Lindsay Spracale, Steven Stelly, Wilfred Hinze, Dencia Baltimore, Eric Ray, Stephen Gutierrez, Nirav Bhakta, Marcia Perales, Sarah Ewing, Alejandra Acuna, Steven Thomas, Aalia Udawala, Brittany Marshall, Ryan Martin, Russell Martinez, Nick Museti, and Matt Trevino .

UTSA prides itself on giving students a well-rounded education. Combining a top-tier academic program with opportunities for personal growth prepares students to compete in a global economy. And that's not all. They learn to be informed and engaged citizens as well. At the heart of that academic program is an award-winning core curriculum.
For four consecutive years, UTSA has received an A-rating from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni for the caliber of its core curriculum. According to ACTA, UTSA requires its students to take six of the seven courses deemed "crucial" to a well-rounded education: composition, literature, U.S. government or history, economics, mathematics and science. Only a handful of other institutions in the U.S. are giving students these tools, which are needed to succeed in careers and the community.
Did you know? UTSA is one of only three Texas institutions and 23 in the United States to receive the highest rating for its core curriculum in the 2014-2015 edition of the ACTA's "What Will They Learn?" report.
