The Core Theatre, in collaboration with several foreign student groups from UT Dallas, is presenting an original theatrical performance Sept. 13-15 about the foreign student experience in North Texas. Students from Taiwan, Kenya, Nigeria and The Democratic Republic of Congo will share their own stories as they lead the audience through the process of coming to the U.S. and petitioning to attend universities in North Texas. Learn what it’s like to leave your family to seek higher education and greater opportunity in another country and study challenging subjects in a language that is not your native tongue.

Show times are Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. with a Sunday matinee at 3 p.m. For tickets, call 214-930-5338 or click here. The Core Theatre is located at 518 W. Arapaho Rd., Ste. 115. To view a video about the production created by the City’s Communications Department, click here.
