University Theatre Productions present the hilarious comedy The Nerd. The show runs April 27 April 30 at 8:00 p.m. and May 1 at 2:00 p.m.

The performances will be at the Albert L. Jeffers Theatre in the Communication Arts & Sciences Building on the corner of University Drive and Sugar Road.

The Nerd is a farce, a comedy of the exaggerated and the absurd. In a play like this, anything is possible, even an invasion of man eating wild pigs in Terra Haute, Indiana. However, beneath all the madness, lies the potentially sad story of Willum Cubbert, a young man facing some difficult choices. Will the Nerd help our hero find his way, or will he bury him in cottage cheese and muddy shoes? In between the silliness, the production offers some authentic drama.

Reserve seating - $12.00, general admission - $8.00, non UTPA students with school ID - $3.00 and UTPA students/faculty/staff one FREE admission with valid UTPA ID plus one FREE guest.

No children below the third grade will be admitted.

The box office opens one hour prior to each performance. For reservations or more information you may call the University Theatre Box Office at 956-665-3581.
