‘The Nerd’ comes to Steel River Playhouse

Steel River Playhouse launches their 2017-2018 season on Oct. 6-22 with the outrageous, uproarious comedic hit The Nerd by Larry Shue. Grab your tickets online at www.steelriver.org.

This Broadway success was reviewed by Thomas Disch, stating, “…it racks up more laughs, and louder, than any farce this side of Alan Ayckbourn. Noises Off is an academic exercise by comparison. It’s impossible to not enjoy the ride.” John McGraw, Director, opens the season with a bang, bringing to life a night of laughter with this exemplary cast in a delightful rollercoaster ride.

Several new names join the production alongside some Steel River Playhouse veterans. Appearing again on the Steel River Playhouse stage, The Nerd boasts Steve Reazor (Warnock Waldgrave), Jeff Cronin (Willum Cubbert), Lisa Hendricks (Clelia Waldgrave) and finally Tom Pederson (Thor Waldgrave). Rounding out the cast and debuting at the playhouse are Joe Donley (Rick Steadman), Marybeth Williamson (Tansy McGinnis), and Drew Boardman (Axel Hammond).

The Nerd is an inventive comedy set in Terre Haute, Indiana, centering on the hilarious dilemma of a young architect visited by a hopelessly inept “nerd” he’s never met before — but who happened to save his life.  Variety wrote of the show that “the audience almost never stops laughing.” Don’t miss out on this hilarious comedic hit, a play that graced NYC stages, now making its way to your backyard at Steel River Playhouse, Oct. 6-22. Purchase tickets online at www.steelriver.org or call the box office at 610-970-1199. Groups of 10 or more contact Beth McDonnell at beth.mcdonnell@steelriver.org for a group sales and discounts.
