Look no further than the KCC theater group, who will give the KCC community a special treat. The Nerd by Larry Shue will be running for two weeks in October at the Binda Theater. “I love comedy,” said Brad Poer, director of the show, “And 'The Nerd' is talked about in theatrical circles as one of the funniest shows of the past 50 years. We are looking to do it justice and make our audiences leave with sore guts from laughing just a bit too hard. Also, since it takes place in 1980, it's a great excuse to play some seriously awesome and/or awful 70's and early 80’s music between scenes...” This coming of age story is about a young man who has an encounter with an old acquaintance and struggles with his relationship with his girlfriend and his family. The story takes place during a party, where there are talks of social issues, fights that are unintentional, and lots of twists and turns. 4th Annual Schubertiade... page 3 Poer guarantees this comedy will be sure that the audience will have the time of their lives.
