The Lofte Community Theatre’s 2008 season will open Friday, May 30, 2008, with the classic play “Charley’s Aunt.”   This world famous farce has moved millions of theatergoers to tears of laughter. Jack Chesney loves Kitty Verdun and Charles loves Miss Spettigue. They invite the ladies to meet Charley's wealthy aunt from Brazil. But alas, the millionaire aunt sends word that she will have to defer her visit for a few days. What is to be done? The dear young things must not be compromised no, never! But, neither will the youths give up the opportunity of declaring their love. The problem is solved by forcing another Oxford undergraduate into a black satin skirt, an old fashioned cap and wig. As Charley's Aunt, this old frump is introduced to the sweethearts. Then the real aunt turns up! In its many stages and motion picture revivals, this play has reached a wide and eager audience.  The show will run May 30th and 31st and June 1st, 6th, 7th, 8th, 12th, 13th, and 14th.  Please call the Lofte Ticket Office at 402-234-2553 to purchase tickets.
