The Cast of Cyrano de Bergerac
We are extraordinarily proud to welcome an extremely fine group of actors to The Archive Theater for our upcoming September show Cyrano de Bergerac. We hope you will enjoy learning a little bit about them.
Cyrano de Bergerac - Patrick David Wheeler
In 2017, following a recent move to Austin and after nearly a 5 year hiatus from theater, Patrick David Wheeler got the itch to start auditioning again and hasn't looked back since. He has had the pleasure and great fortune to meet and work with so many talented and passionate individuals over the past two years and continues to grow as an artist both on and off the stage because of their ability, warmth, and generosity. Some Austin credits include Bill Fordham in August: Osage County (BWW award, Best Featured Actor in a Drama), Amos Heart in Chicago, Shamreyev in The Seagull, and the title roles in both Hamlet and Macbeth. Patrick is so incredibly honored to be part of this production of Cyrano de Bergerac, and hopes you, like Cyrano, will live your truth, love always, and enjoy the show. Risk, Fail, Risk Again!

Le Bret - Michael Rodriguez
Michael Rodriguez is a graduate of the University of Tampa double majoring in Film and English Literature. His parents are very kind to have allowed this.

He recently co-produced and performed in a feature film with Thirty Thousand Feet Productions titled Austin Weird that he highly recommends you check out.
