Here comes Lily with her purple plastic purse! And Alexander, as usual, having a "terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day"…and Pierre just doesn’t care! Yes, N.U.R.T. is back and better than ever! It's a fast, furious and fantastically funny 40 minutes of fun!

Once again, well-loved children’s tales, brought to life by trained actors (all are performance majors from Niagara University Theatre playing dozens of your favorite characters) will delight audiences of all ages!

Niagara University Repertory Theatre (N.U.R.T.), an extraordinary and highly successful ensemble of touring entertainers, has been a Western New York tradition for the past 35 years.

N.U.R.T. is available to come to your location on selected dates, free of charge, between Monday, July 7, and Friday, Aug. 22, 2014. An application must be submitted with a requested date and time. Applications are filled on a first-come, first-served basis and dates do quickly close out. Phone and fax reservations will not be accepted. Confirmation letters will be sent out after May 15, as applications have been received and schedules confirmed.

Although no fee will be charged, any donation your group is able to provide to help offset travel expenses will be most welcome. Please note that admission may not be charged for these performances.

For further information or to receive an application, please contact Jennifer Stahlman, Office Coordinator at 716.284.8483 or at
