Based loosely on Edmond Rostand’s play Cyrano de Bergerac, CALVIN BERGER is the hip and hilarious story of unrequited feelings, love notes, and physical insecurity among four high school seniors. Calvin is smitten by the beautiful Rosanna, but he feels insecure because of the size of his nose. Rosanna, in turn, is attracted to the good-looking newcomer, Matt, who is painfully shy and inarticulate around her, although the attraction is mutual. Hoping to get closer to Rosanna through his eloquent love notes,
Calvin offers to be Matt’s “speech writer,” all the while ignoring the signals of attraction from another girl, his best friend, Bret. When the deception unravels, everybody?s friendship is seriously jeopardized, but Calvin eventually realizes that his preoccupation with his appearance had led him astray, and his eyes are opened to Bret, who?d been there all along.

The Theatre Institute at Sage will present Calvin Berger the following dates:

Friday, February, 21 at 7:30pm

Saturday, February 22 at 7:30pm
