Lofte wrongWindow

Pictured :  Kevin Colbert and Brandy Palatas can’t help but snooping on the neighbors in the Hitchcock inspired, “Wrong Window!” opening at the Lofte Community Theatre on Oct 11.   

“Wrong Window” Opens at Lofte

The hilarious Hitchcock-inspired farce,“ Wrong Window!” will open on the Lofte Community Theatre’s stage on October 11.  The script is written by the successful writing team of Van Zandt and Milmore whose other works include “Love, Sex and the I.R.S.,” and “Suitehearts.”  

New York couple Marnie and Jeff think their neighbor has killed his wife.  However, the woman’s body soon disappears and the bumbling witnesses sneak into the cross-courtyard apartment to solve the mystery.  In all, there are over 30 script references to the works and characters in Alfred Hitchcock films.  Can you spot them all?

The production is directed by and stars Kevin Colbert as Jeff.  His wife Marnie is played by Brandy Palatas of Papillion.  Rounding out the cast are Scott Pope and Scott Nielsen of Eagle, Melinda Mead of Plattsmouth, John Bell and Ken Patry of Omaha, and Jeff Johnston and Ken Snyder of Elmwood.  Alyssa DiPaolo of Lincoln gives a stunning performance as the dead body.  

Performance dates for “Wrong Window!” are October 11, 12, 17-19 and 24-26.  Friday and Saturday curtain times are at 7:30pm.  All Sunday performances are 2pm matinees.  Tickets are $19 and reservations can be made by calling the box office at 402-234-2553.  The Lofte Community Theatre is located just east of Hwy 50 near the town of Manley.
