Prices for the dinner theater are

The comedy club sells student

performers come from UNL or
Wesleyan. It’s not often that we have
actors who come from elsewhere.”
The theater caters to local talent

behind the scenes as well.

as an actor, said being a part of the
theater has given him room to experi
