THE RED VELVET CAKE WAR

By Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope & Jamie Wooten
Sept 9 - 11 & 15 - 18
Thurs-Sat 7:30 p.m.
Sundays 2:00 p.m.
Tickets are $19


The Verdeen cousins (Gaynelle, Peaches and Jimmie Wyvette) could not have picked a worse time to schedule their family reunion. They face an uphill battle on the hottest day in July smack-dab in the middle of Texas tornado season. Soon a parade of wildly eccentric Verdeen's descend upon their southern town and things spin hilariously out of control. You will wish your own family reunions were this much fun!

This production runs for seven dates over the course of two weekends. Be sure to make your reservations and don't miss this family-friendly hootenanny!

Lofte Community Theatre Brings Home State Honors!

Manley, NE [August 8, 2016] -  On Saturday, July 23, the Lofte Community Theatre participated in the Nebraska Association of Community Theatres Festival in Minden, NE.  The association holds a biennial play competition and 2016 saw the Lofte walking away with the top prize!  The Lofte cast and crew not only won Outstanding Production, but Doug Rothgeb won Supporting Actor.  Silvia Conley won Supporting Actress and Nick Haussler won Outstanding Set Design.

The play is a competition piece written by Mark Kenneally.  The comedy is the story of red-neck named Wally who curses the name of Shakespeare and opts to attend a monster truck rally instead of “As You Like It.”  Wally soon feels the wrath of the Bard as he wakes the next morning after a rough night out, finding he can only speak in Shakespearian verse.

Directed by Allison Bauers of Louisville, the Lofte cast and crewhave advanced to the regional competition which will be held in April 2017 in Brainerd, MN.


Happy 40th Birthday Lofte!

Manley, NE [August 8, 2016] - 2016 marks the Lofte Community Theatre's 40th season.  They are celebrating their “Ruby Jubilee" in style with a informal birthday party on Saturday, August 13 at 7:30pm.  There is a small admission fee of $5.

The Lofte has grown from a small group of locals who put up a play in a neighbor’s barn to an important regional arts center.  Literally thousands of individuals have graced the stage and/or attended one of their events.  The Lofte is celebrating their accomplishments with cake, ice cream and loads of quality entertainment. You will see familiar faces from the forty-year history as Lofte alumni treat you to some of your favorite show tunes. 

Purchase tickets in advance or at the door.  Come and celebrate the theatre's rich history and share the evening with good friends.
