AUDITION NOTICE

 The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley will be holding auditions on Monday, September 5 and Tuesday, September 6 at 7pm for its production of, "Don't Dress For Dinner."  The script calls for 3 men and 3 women between the ages of 25-55.  Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script.  

 Written by Robin Hawdon, the story revolves around a man planning a weekend with his mistress at a remote farmhouse.  Best friend, Robert is to provide a foolproof alibi, but when the wife arrives unexpectedly and the caterer is mistaken for the mistress, hilarity ensues.  Director Kevin Colbert notes that this script should be rated PG-13.  Performance dates run October 15-30.

 Questions can be addressed by calling the theater at (402) 234-2553 or emailing Director Kevin Colbert at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Registration for contestants starts at 1:30 PM the day of the FIDDLING BEE.  Admission is $10.00 for adult, $5.00 for students, and $1.00 for children.  Fiddlers and their back-ups are admitted for free.  For more information, call 402-275-3221, log on to www.greenblattandseay.com, or e-mailThis email address is being protected from spambots.
