"Christmas Survival Guide" Opens at Lofte
The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley will open its holiday Christmas musical, "Christmas Survival Guide," on Saturday December 3. Written by James Hindman and Ray Roderick with music by John Glaudini, this show is a musical revue that takes a wry look at what can be a very stressful season. Armed with a copy of a new book, "A Christmas Survival Guide," the characters charge into the holiday searching for the true meaning of the holiday.
Artistic Director Kevin Colbert described the show as a "Perry Como Christmas special with lots of songs and comedy sketches that will keep audience members entertained and laughing out loud." Starring in the show are Brandy Palatas and Allison Tiller of Omaha; Dan Hendrickson, Benjiman Pettiford and Cory Misek of Lincoln, Cynthia West Sheldon and Janet Sorensen of Elmwood; and Anne Pope of Eagle. Musical Director is Betty Colbert and choreographer is Noelle Bohaty.
Show dates run December 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 15, 16, 17 and 18. Curtain is at 7:30pm on Thursdays through Saturday and Sunday afternoons at 2pm. Ticket prices are $17. There are special rates for groups over 20 so this may be a fun alternative to the traditional holiday office party.
The Lofte is located just east of the intersection of Hwy 50 and Hwy 1 in Cass County near the village of Manley. Those inquiring about tickets may call the Lofte Box Office at (402)234-2553 or visit the Lofte website at www.Lofte.com
