Cyrano secretly loves Roxanna (Debbie Hunter) but when she tells him of her interest in the handsome yet inarticulate soldier Christian (Andrew Bray), Cyrano helps the young man woo her by acting as his muse and penning eloquent love letters. Songs include "The Nose Song," "Roxanna," "Bergerac" and "You Have Made Me Love."

The cast also features notable Portland artists Ron Harman, Maggie Chapin, Tim Smith and Gary Norman.
