The Bowlus Fine Arts Center opened its doors on April 9-10 to showcase IHS talents in “Cyrano De BurgerShack.” The musical, by Jeremy Desmon, is a modern retelling of Edmond Rostand’s classic “Cyrano de Bergerac.” The story is of a lovestruck Cyrano, trying to win the heart of life-long best friend Roxanne.

In this modernized musical, Cyrano runs the local burger shack and assists the not-so-bright Christian, who happens to be Cyrano’s employee, win the heart of the lovely Roxanne. The show is brought to life with the modern and recognizable musical numbers, making it fun for the audience as well.
