Before the cultural acceptance of the theater, thespians sent their serious children to orphanages to befriend redheaded wards and gain an appreciation of spontaneous singing and dancing. Stay awake with the thrills of live theater using today’s Groupon: for $9, you get a ticket to the performance of The Nerd (up to a $21 value) on Saturday, April 30, at 8 p.m. at the Weathervane Playhouse.
Under the professional direction of Rohn Thomas, the thespians of the Weathervane Playhouse present The Nerd, a two-act comedy set in 1981 about an architect who receives a surprise visit from a socially awkward man who saved his life years earlier. The show is the upcoming main-stage production at the volunteer-based playhouse known for promoting a sense of community through entertainment, education, and subliminal soft-drink advertisements. Save time and hair follicles by experiencing an awful houseguest vicariously through the plight of the pushover architect, Willum, whose tribulations played out on Broadway in the 1980s, when pointy shoulder pads kept theatergoers from celebratory postproduction hugs.
