CHILDREN’S THEATRE AUDITIONS AT THE LOFTE

Ready or not, here they come!  It’s time for the summer children’s theater event at the Lofte Community Theatre in Manley.  In cooperation with the Missoula Children’s Theatre, the Lofte will soon be holding auditions for this year’s production of “Sleeping Beauty."  Rest assured, there are several parts available for both boys and girls. 

Auditions take place at the Lofte on Monday morning, June 8 beginning at 10am.  Please arrive by 9:45 to allow time for registration.  Children who will be entering first grade through the seventh grade are eligible.  There are parts for approximately 60 children as well as opportunities for Assistant Directors and Light Booth operators.  The cast list will be announced at noon, immediately following the audition process.  While not all actors are required for all rehearsal times, all children should have a clear schedule June 8-12, 10am-2:30pm. 

There will be two public performances on Saturday, June 13, 3pm & 6pm.  Tickets are free for all Lofte season ticket holders.  Adult tickets are $10 and children are $8.   

This is an amazing experience for the kids and the Lofte is proud to be able to host it.  Special thanks goes out to Pinnacle Bank in Louisville and Plattsmouth State Bank for their sponsorship.  Those with questions may contact Anne Pope at This email address is being protected from spambots.

“MESSIAH” OPENS LOFTE’S 39TH SEASON

The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley announces that on Saturday, May 23 it will open its 39th season with the family dramedy, “Messiah on the Frigidaire.”  Written by John Culbertson, “Messiah” takes place in the small town of Elroy, South Carolina.  Lou Ann Hightower and her husband Dwayne find what seems to be the image of Jesus appearing on an outdoor refrigerator.  When the appearance makes front page news, their little trailer park soon becomes a mecca of communion and commerce.  

Kevin Colbert directs the show with Brenna Thompson of Lincoln playing Lou Ann and Scott Seelhoff of Fremont playing her husband Dwayne.  Others in the cast include  Chelsea Lulla of Ashland, Michael Magrans and Dan Ryberg of Omaha, Jestin Jones of Lincoln, Denise Schroeder of Gretna and Will Jones of Manley.  

Production dates for the show are May 23, 24, 28-31 and June 5-7.  Curtain times are Thursday through Saturday at 7:30pm and Sundays at 2pm.  Ticket prices are $19.  Those interested can still purchase a season pass for all five of the Lofte’s shows this year for only $75.  

The Lofte is located just east of the intersection of Highways 1 and 50 in Cass County.  Reservations can be made by calling the box office at (402) 234-2553.
