Stage comedy awaits contest winner

Alison Brown, space planning assistant in Facility Services, won Tuesday’s DailyNews trivia quiz and the prize of a pair of tickets to see the University Players production of the laugh-out-loud comedy The Nerd.

Brown’s name was drawn from all those respondents who correctly answered that Mark Hamill starred in the play’s Broadway run, Rowan Atkinson played the nerdy title character, and Dr. Seuss was the first author to use the term in publication.

She will receive two tickets to see the University Players show, continuing its run through Sunday in Essex Hall Theatre. Order tickets online at or by calling 519-253-3000, ext. 2808.
