    Peter Dinklage will be in Connecticut this summer to star in a musical in Chester.

    The Game of Thrones star and Haley Bennett, who was in “Thank You For Your Service” and “Girl on a Train,” will lead the cast of Cyrano, a musical based on Cyrano de Bergerac, a show that will run from Aug. 3 to Sept. 2 at the Terris Theater in Chester. More casting will be announced later.

    Dinklage stars as Cyrano and Bennett stars as Roxanne.

    The project, which is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, will be at Terris Theatre, what the Goodspeed says is its home for developing new musicals.

    Staff from the Goodspeed said many new or reimagined musicals have been developed in Chester before moving on to Broadway, off-Broadway, national tours or other regional theatres.

    Because Terris is a developmental theatre, the show can change on a day-to-day basis. New scenes are added, songs are moved, costumes are changed and dialogue is tweaked―all based on audience response and feedback, according to Goodspeed.

    The curtain times will be on Wednesdays at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., Thursdays at 7:30 p.m., Fridays at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sundays at 2 pm and 6:30 p.m.

    Season tickets for all three shows at The Terris Theatre are available to Goodspeed members now and to the public beginning May 7. The price of season tickets starts at $132.

    Single tickets go on public sale beginning May 21. Single tickets start at $49.

    You can get tickets through the Box Office (860-873-8668). You can also buy single tickets online at the Goodspeed Musicals website
