POWER OF POETRY
Travel into the world of poetry with famed poet and swordsman Cyrano de Bergerac — a man with a nose for trouble and the right words to make it all work out in the end. Classic poems find their feet in this imaginative, onstage ode to how choosing the right words can make all the difference.
The performance connects with curriculums in poetry, writing, iambic pentameter, classic literature, language and communication skills.
