Lofte Theatre Adds Visiting Artists to Schedule
The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley is proud to announce that it will be hosting two visiting artists in 2012. Back by popular demand, Nebraska native, Joseph Hall will amaze you with his life performance as Elvis Presley. Last year, Mr. Hall's Lofte concert sold out so quickly, that many did not get the opportunity to see him. This year Lofte has two opportunities for you to attend this event. On Saturday, February 18, you can see Elvis at either 2pm or 7pm. All seats are reserved and tickets are $20. Be advised, this event has been selling very well. We strongly suggest that you make your reservations soon.
Another popular touring show is coming to the Lofte on April 21st. "Rave On!" features America's premiere Buddy Holly tribute artist and Nebraska native, Billy McGuigan. In this electrifying show, audiences will experience the thrills of a Buddy Holly concert re-imagined with hits such as "Peggy Sue," "It's So Easy," and "That'll Be the Day."
"Rave On!" has run for sold-out crowds several times in Omaha and we're proud to bring this popular show to Cass County. Showtime is 7pm on Saturday, April 21st. All seats are reserved and cost $28. As of the end of December, there are only 200 tickets left. We strongly suggest that you make your reservations today.
The Lofte Theatre is located just east of the village of Manley. If you have any questions or wish to purchase tickets, please call the box office at (402) 234-2553.
