The Foreign Student Experience

ONE Week only!

Showing from September 13 through September 15, Friday through Saturday at 8:00PM
Sunday matinee September 15 at 3:00PM

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to leave your family and the only land you have ever known to seek higher education and greater opportunity in another country? Have you ever considered the courage and determination it would take to plunge into your college experience, studying challenging subjects in a language that is not your native tongue? The Core Theatre has collaborated with UTD foreign students representing the nations of Taiwan, Kenya, The Democratic Republic of Congo, and Nigeria to create this enlightening theatre experience. These students will share their own stories as they lead the audience through the process of coming to the United States and petitioning to attend our universities in North Texas.

Over the River and Through the Woods

by Joe Di Pietro

Showing from October 18 through November 10, Friday through Saturday at 8:00PM
Sunday matinees October 20, 27, November 3, 10 at 3:00PM

Nick is a single, Italian-American guy from New Jersey. His parents retired and moved to Florida. That doesn't mean his family isn't still in Jersey. In fact, he sees both sets of his grandparents every Sunday for dinner. This is routine until he has to tell them that he's been offered a dream job. The job he's been waiting for—marketing executive—would take him away from his beloved, but annoying, grandparents. He tells them. The news doesn't sit so well. Thus begins a series of schemes to keep Nick around. How could he betray his family's love to move to Seattle, for a job, wonder his grandparents? Well, Frank, Aida, Nunzio and Emma do their level best, and that includes bringing to dinner the lovely—and single—Caitlin O'Hare as bait…we won't give the ending away here.

The Trial of Ebenezer Scrooge

by Mark Brown

The Trial of the Century! A year after his miraculous transformation, Ebenezer Scrooge is back to his old ways and is suing Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future for breaking and entering, kidnapping, slander, pain and suffering, attempted murder and the intentional infliction of emotional distress. The ghosts employ Solomon Rothschild, England's most charismatic, savvy, and clever barrister. Scrooge, that old penny pincher, represents himself. One by one, Bob Cratchit, Scrooge's nephew Fred, solicitor and philanthropist Sara Anne Wainwright, and the ghosts themselves take the witness stand to give their account of the night in question.
