“HEAVEN CAN WAIT” KICKS OFF LOFTE’S 34TH SEASON
Bob Pinkerton of Weeping Water and Jamion Biesterfeld of Louisville star in the Lofte’s season opener, “Heaven Can Wait.”
The Lofte Community Theatre will begin its 34th season with Harry Segall’s classic, “Heaven Can Wait.” It is the story of a loveable prize-fighter, Joe Pendleton whom is snatched into the afterlife before his time. In an effort to rectify the situation, his guardian angel returns Joe to earth in the body of an elderly millionaire. “Heaven Can Wait” has all of the ingredients of a lighthearted comedy while also asking important questions about life and true love.
The original stage play “Heaven Can Wait” has been made into several movie versions over the years. The most well-known was the 1978 film starring Warren Beatty and Julie Christie. The original movie, 1941’s “Here Comes Mr. Jordan” received two Academy Awards for Original Story and Best Screenplay.
Directed by Kevin Colbert, the production stars Jamion Biesterfeld of Louisville in the starring role of Joe Pendleton. His well-meaning heavenly guide is played by Bob Pinkerton of Weeping Water. Other cast members include Theresa Massoth and Mark Sievering of Murray; Mark Sheldon, Tim Sorensen and Jeff Johnston of Elmwood; Anna and Levi Stroebel and Silvia Conley of Omaha; Melinda Mead and David Willingham of Plattsmouth and Hope and Dave Hibler of Manley.
The production runs May 28-30, June 4-6 and 10-13. Tickets are $16 and can be purchased by calling the Lofte Box Office at (402) 234-2553 or online at www.Lofte.com. Please note that season tickets for all five of the Lofte’s stage productions can still be purchased for $60 through June 13.
