Opens at Mahoney
Pictured: Shari Hoelker of Omaha and Melinda Mead of Plattsmouth star as two bitter cooking-show rivals in "The Kitchen Witches" at Mahoney State Park.
KBC Productions will be opening its spring production of "The Kitchen Witches" at Mahoney State Park's Kountze Theater on Saturday, March 10. Isobel and Dolly are two middle-aged cable TV cooking show hostesses who have hated each other for years. When circumstances put them together on the same TV show, the insults are flung harder than the food!
Starring in the production as the two feisty food flingers are Shari Hoelker of Omaha and Melinda Mead of Plattsmouth. Cory Misek of Lincoln plays Dolly's long-suffering son. Marikita Saure of Lincoln is also in the show. The play is directed by Kevin Colbert.
Show dates for the production are March 16-18, 23-25, 30, 31, April 1, 7, 13-15, 20 and 22. Curtain time is 7:30pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Sunday performances are 2pm matinees. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for children. Please call (402)944-2523 ext 7122 for reservations.
KBC productions also noted that the "Mahoney Grill" is now open. The park's restaurant is under new management with a new menu. Those that attend the shows will now have the opportunity to try the new fare before or after the play.
