Lofte Community Theatre Actresses Receive Three Nominations!
The Lofte Community Theatre's 2008 musical production of Rogers and Hammerstein's "Sound of Music" was certainly special. Anyone who bought a ticket or performed in the show knew that. Each and every night the cast consistently delivered a world-class performance that left many in tears or begging for another ticket to the next performance. In recognition of their fine work, three of the Lofte's finest actresses received nominations from the Theatre Arts Guild of Omaha.
Jennifer Gilg of Omaha received a nomination for lead actress in a musical for her role as "Maria." Her touching portrayal of the nun-turned-nanny, and beautiful singing voice left a deep impression on nominating Guild members. Mrs. Gilg also had a nomination in the category for Supporting Actress for a role in Omaha at SNAP! Productions.
Two of the Lofte's von Trapp children received nominations in the category for Outstanding Performance by a Youth Actress. Kabrianna Mumford of Elmwood portrayed the youngest daughter, "Gretl." Anna Schoettger of Lincoln received a nomination for her role as "Louisa."
While none of the nominated Lofte actresses won in their category, each was still very honored by the recognition. There are literally hundreds of performers who participate in theater in the Omaha metro each year, and to be mentioned in the top five in any category is certainly a credit to their talent.
Front Row from L to R, Abigail Raasch, Jenniger Gilg, Kabrianna Mumford.
Back Row, Matt Bailey, Samantha Colbert, Luke Heidbrink, Anna Schoettger and Jordyn Marcoe.
