A history-inspired festival of food, drink and entertainment!

Montana Actors’ Theatre presents a new event in Havre! For the first time, a Renaissance-themed “faire” will take place in the ampitheatre behind Pershing Hall on the MSUN campus. Beginning at 2pm, vendors will offer food, beer and wine, historical crafts and trades, demonstrations and generally a fun time! We will also feature a Home Brew Contest with fantastic prizes. In addition, at 7 pm each night, MAT will present Cyrano de Bergerac. The classic, tragic story of the soulful poet/philosopher and expert duelist Cyrano who loves the fair Roxanne, but is ashamed to woo her because of his huge nose. Instead he writes love letters for slow-witted, but handsome Christian in order to win her hand for him. She falls deeply in love with the author, but doesn’t know they were written by her friend Cyrano. Cyrano is a swashbuckling comedy of love, swordplay and poetry directed by Grant Olson. Starring Jay Pyette as Cyrano, Casey Pratt as Le Bret, Tylyn Turner as Roxanne and introducing Stephen Real as Christian, this tale will certainly be a crowd-pleaser.
