This will be the 5th year the St. Joseph's Knights of Columbus take part in the coats for kids program, helping children in our community. The past 2 years we have had hats, gloves and scarves donated to go along with the coats.  We have experienced such a demand, this year we have purchased 72 coats to donate which is 33% more than the past years.  We would like to have donations of hats, mittens and scarves again.  We gladly accept all colors and we are looking for kids sizes 4-10 for the mittens. If you are interested in donating please contact Ralph Meister 402 707-8426. We try to get the coats out around the first week of November.

The Cast of “Nana’s Naughty Knickers,” at the Lofte Community Theatre.  Front row left to right, Shelia Hansen, Shari Hoelker, Alyssa DiPaolo and Brenda Jones.  Back row, Ross Mumford, Jestin Jones, Ken Snyder, Jeff Johnston and Melinda Mead.

The Lofte Community Theatre announces the opening of their next production, “Nana’s Naughty Knickers,” on Saturday, October 10 at 7:30pm.  Written by Katherine DiSavino, the script is a fast-paced comedic farce that has become the Lofte’s fall tradition.  

Bridget is a young woman who is about to become roommates with her sweet little Grandma in a rent-controlled apartment in New York City.  However, what Bridget first saw as an easy opportunity quickly turns into mayhem.  It seems that sweet little Nana is running an illegal boutique from their apartment, selling naughty hand-made lingerie to local senior citizens.  

Alyssa DiPaolo of Lincoln and Shari Hoelker of Omaha play Bridget and her grandmother, respectively.  Rounding out the cast are Brenda Jones of Louisville, Ross Mumford, Jestin Jones and Shelia Hansen of Lincoln, Wendy Allen and Melinda Mead of Plattsmouth and Jeff Johnston and Ken Snyder both of Elmwood.  The production is directed by Kevin Colbert.

The production runs October 10, 11, 15-18 and 23-25.  Thursday through Saturday evening shows begin at 7:30pm.  Sunday performances are 2pm matinees.  Tickets are $19 with special discounts offered to groups of twenty or more.  The Lofte is located near the town of Manley in Cass County.  Those interested in tickets should call the Lofte box office at 402-234-2553 or visit their website, www.Lofte.com.
