 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.

SCHOOLHOUSE IRISH FIDDLING CAMP

The Old Avoca Schoolhouse in Avoca, Nebraska will be hosting a special "Schoolhouse Irish Fiddling Camp", for fiddlers, violists, guitarists, and ukulele players.  The sessions will be led by championship fiddler and author, Deborah Greenblatt.

The camp will be on Monday, March 12 - Friday, March 16, from 9 AM to 1 PM.  You can sign up for 1 day, or 2 days, or 3 days, or 4 days, or all 5 days.

On Monday & Tuesday, participants will be mostly reading tunes, using sheet music in standard notation.  We'll be learning melodies, harmonies, and chords.  You will be improving your sight reading, and experiencing fiddling fun.

On Wednesday & Thursday, we will be mostly playing tunes by ear, so feel free to bring your recording gadgets.  Sheet music versions of the tunes will be provided for you by the end of  camp, just in case your ears need the help.

On Friday, we will be mostly jamming, modulating, singing, dancing, experimenting, sharing, and playing fiddle related instruments.

Enrollment for the "Schoolhouse Irish Fiddling Camp" is limited, so e-mail Deborah (This email address is being protected from spambots.
