This is the image for the news article titled High School Two-Act Play "The Nerd" by Larry Shue Hits Verona March 15-18 VAHS Theatre Arts will present four performances of the comedy The Nerd on March 15-18, 2016 in the VAHS Performing Arts Center. One of the funniest plays ever written, 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 turning out to be an incredibly inept, hopelessly stupid "nerd" who outstays his welcome with a vengeance. "Shue delivers a neatly crafted package that uses some classic comic forms to bring the audience to its knees, laughing." The Milwaukee Journal. "…the audience almost never stops laughing—handkerchiefs wiping away tears of merriment…" Variety. "…a spring tonic of side-bruising laughter…" The Milwaukee Tribune.

The VAHS Theatre cast includes Caulden Parkel, Tomas Endter, Maggie Ferguson, Mary Schroeder, Sabrina Coonen, Max Luke, Emily Marckesano, Morty Arnol, and Isiah Doyle as the “nerd.”

The production is directed by Steve Nibbe. Holly Dunn will stage manage.

Tickets for the production are $10.00 for general admission and $5.00 for students and seniors and can be obtained at the door on the evening of the performance. Only 100 seats will be available per performance. SEE YOU THERE!
