We saw Cyrano here because a relative was in the play. It's a very small theatre which can get quite cramped when full. We ran into issues when several performances including the one we originally bought tickets for were cancelled. We were able to get...More

I went to see Cyrano this past Sunday at the Terris Theatre. The show is fabulous. The theater is small, only 200 seats, which makes seeing a show very intimate. I will hopefully attend another performance at this theater in the future.

You may or may not the plot or the music but the ticket prices are low. Very intimate theater with no bad seats. Most plays are being worked on and may change from one performance to the next. Don’t expect big production numbers; it’s a...More
