LOFTE COMMUNITY THEATRE

Lofte cast of “Unnecessary Farce” front row – Anna Strobel, Joshua Smith, Kyle Lorenz, Anne Pope.  Back row – Kevin Holdorf, Dawn Holdorf, Ken Patry

 On October 15, the Lofte Community Theatre in Manley will continue its tradition of fast-paced comedy productions by opening Paul Slade’s hilarious “Unnecessary Farce.”

Written in 2002, the script is modern and very witty.  The story takes place in two adjoining hotel rooms.  In one room, two rookie cops prepare to bust their town’s mayor for embezzlement.  With the help of a love-starved woman accountant and a video camera, they set-up a sting in the adjoining room.  However, their simple plan soon goes haywire.  The accountant keeps taking off her clothes.  The mayor’s security guard is overly protective.  A mysterious Scottish hitman appears, but is brogue is so thick no one can understand his instructions.

 The production is directed by Kevin Colbert of Weeping Water.  The colorful ensemble cast includes Kyle Lorenz of Lincoln, Anne Pope of Eagle, Anna Strobel and Ken Patry of Omaha, Kevin and Dawn Holdorf of Manley and Joshua Smith of La Vista.

 Performance dates are October 15-17, 22-24 and 28-31.   Curtain times are 7:30pm on Thursday-Saturday and 2pm matinees on Sundays.  General admission tickets are $16.  Reservations can be made by calling the Lofte ticket office at (402) 234-2553.

 The Lofte is located near the intersection of Hwy 1 and Hwy 50 near the town of Manley.  For driving directions and more information about the theater, please visit their website, www.Lofte.com.
