The concert will be downstairs in the Old Avoca Schoolhouse, and  followed by light refreshments, and a chance to chat and even jam with the performers.  Avoca is in southern Cass County, Nebraska, on the 13 C Spur,  one mile south of Highway 34.  Admission is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for students and senior citizens, and $1.00 for children.

The British are coming!  The British are coming!  The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley announces the production, "Yesterday and Today!" will be on the Lofte stage Saturday, April 20 at 7:30pm and Sunday, April 21 at 2pm.   Tribute artist and Nebraska native, Billy McGuigan will lead the interactive Beatles experience.  In this electrifying show, audiences create the playlist so each performance is fresh and unique.  There are no costumes or wigs; just great music in a wonderfully beautiful setting.

Each show is totally unique.  Audience members fill out request cards for their favorite Beatles tune.  When a request card is selected, the band asks that person to explain why that particular Beatles tune is special to them.  This is a wonderfully fun and memorable experience for all! 

"Yesterday and Today" has run for sold-out crowds several times in Omaha and we're proud to bring this popular show to Cass County.  Showtime is 7:30pm on Saturday, April 20 and 2pm on Sunday, April 21.  All seats are reserved and cost $30. 

The Lofte Theatre is located just east of the village of Manley.  If you have any questions or wish to purchase tickets, please call the box office at (402) 234-2553.
