Otterbein Summer Theatre Presents The Nerd

June 12, 2015

Westerville, OH—Otterbein Summer Theatre presents The Nerd at 7:30 p.m. on June 18; 2 p.m. on June 21 and June 26; and 8 p.m. on June 5-6 and June 19-20, June 25-27 and July 2-3, ONSTAGE at the Fritsche Theatre at Roush Hall, 30 S. Grove St. Tickets cost $25. Call 614-823-1109 or visit www.otterbein.edu/drama.

This extraordinarily inventive, side-splitting comedy was first presented by the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, then produced in Great Britain, then went on to Broadway. The action centers on the hilarious dilemma of a young architect who is visited by a man he’s never met, but who saved his life in Vietnam. The visitor turns out to be an incredibly inept, hopelessly stupid “nerd” who outstays his welcome with a vengeance.

Tickets are $25 each and can be reserved by calling the Otterbein University box office at (614) 823-1109 or purchased online at  www.otterbein.edu/drama. The box office is open 10 a.m.- 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and one hour prior to performances. The box office is located in Cowan Hall, 30 S. Grove St., Westerville. Student Rush discounts are available one hour prior to curtain, pending ticket availability.
