'Christmas at Leon's' Returns to Lofte Theatre
The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley announces that "Christmas at Leon's" will open on their stage Saturday, December 1. The original script is written by Nebraska natives Mick Kovar and Lofte Artistic Director Kevin Colbert. Original score is composed by Mick Kovar.
'Leon's' made its world premiere on the Lofte stage in 2010. Its popularity was so great that the Lofte is bringing it back again this holiday season. The story revolves around a bus full of holiday travelers who find themselves stranded at an odd little cafe in the middle of Nebraska. Each character is struggling to find their own "Merry Christmas." Uplifting songs and a heartfelt midwestern message make this a great show for the whole family.
Directed by Kevin Colbert, the cast includes Mick and Renee Kovar, Samantha Colbert, Mathew Pegler and Shelia Hansen Snell all of Lincoln; Scott Pope of Eagle and Wade Mumford of Elmwood; Larry Bauers, Brenda Jones and Jamion Biesterfeld from Louisville; Allison Tiller and Ellie Kroeger of Omaha; Anna Stroebel, Brandy Palatas and Tom Lucas of Papillion.
Performance dates for "Christmas at Leon's" are Dec 1, 2, 6-9 and 13-15. Curtain times are 7:30pm Thursday through Saturday. Sunday performances are 2pm matinees. All tickets are $17 and reservations can be made by calling the Lofte box office at 402-234-2553. The Lofte is located near the intersection of Hwy 1 and Hwy 50 in the town of Manley.
