Lofte Receives Two Awards at Regional Competition
The Lofte Community Theatre of Manley, NE was one of two Nebraska arts organizations recently selected to represent the state at the AACT Regional play competition held in Kansas. Players from the Lofte performed a one hour cutting from "Leaving Iowa," a comedy by Tim Clue & Spike Manton that revolves around one man's memories of childhood family vacations.
In all, there were ten entries from the states of Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, North and South Dakota, Minnesota and Missouri. The competition took place at the Salina Community Theatre April 28-May 1. At the end of the competition, the Lofte took home two prestigious awards; "Best Costumes," and actor Larry Bauers of Louisville was awarded, "Best Supporting Actor." Beatrice's Community Players were recognized in the category of "Best Sound." The Lofte is a non-profit organization and was able to attend the competition thanks to generous donations from the general public as well as a grant from the Nebraska Arts Council.
Artistic Director Kevin Colbert was extremely proud of the cast's performance. He also noted that the winner of the competition, "Wiley and the Hairy Man," from a theater in Cloquet, Minnesota was directed by Cheryl Kramer-Milder (formerly Callahan). Cheryl is a Lofte Community Theatre alumni who performed in many of their productions from 1978-1981. The Minnesota team will now advance to the national AACT competition being held in Rochester, NY.
The full-length version of "Leaving Iowa," will open the Lofte's 2011 season. Performances will run May 28-June 12. Tickets are $17 and can be purchased online at www.Lofte.com or by calling the Lofte box office (402) 234-2553.

CASS COUNTY FAIR 2011
~During my second year of nursing school our professor gave us a quiz. I breezed through the questions until I read the last one: "What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?"Surely this was a joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times, but how would I know her name. I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Before the class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our grade. "Absolutely," the professor said. "In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say hello. "I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy.
