IN A DAY LONG EVENT

The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley opens the wacky musical-comedy 'Nunset Boulevard' on Saturday, October 12. 'Nunset' is the sixth installment of the popular series chronicling the antics little sisters of Hoboken. This time they have been invited to perform at the Hollywood Bowl. However, upon their arrival, they discover that it's actually the Hollywood Bowl-A-Rama and Cabaret Lounge. When they find there is a screen test going on across the street, they think stardom is just a few steps away! This is a fun family-friendly evening filled with lighthearted comedy and fantastic vocals.
Directed by Kevin Colbert, the play stars the operatically trained Janet Sorensen of Elmwood as Reverend Mother. Her second in command, Sister Mary Hubert is played by Betty Colbert. Anna Stroebel of Papillion, Charity Baker of Elmwood and Samantha colbert and Alyssa DiPaolo both of Lincoln fill out the ranks.
The production opens October 12 and runs October 13, 18-20 and 24-27. Tickets are $17. Reservations can be made by calling the Lofte box office at 402.234.2553 or visiting the Lofte website at Lofte.com.
SCHOOL HOUSE FIDDLING RESULTS
The Seventeenth Annual Schoolhouse Fiddling Bee in Avoca, Nebraska, was enjoyed by a full house on Sunday afternoon, October 13, in The Old Avoca Schoolhouse.
Musicians from Avoca, Bellevue, Bennington, Lincoln, Omaha, Ord, Seward, competed and jammed with their upright basses, fiddles, guitars, and voices, for cash money and prizes. The judges had a difficult job, but managed to make wonderful decisions. The judges were Kylie Rezac, from Lincoln, and Don Bochnicek, from Omaha.
In the Open Division, each fiddler had to play a hoedown, a waltz, and a tune of choice. The winners were:
First Place - Mike Oneel, from Ord
Second Place - Devin Cartwright, from Bennington
Third Place - Dottie Ladman, from Lincoln
In the Singing Division, each fiddler has to play and sing a tune at the same time. The winner was Ella Moll, from Seward.
In the Fee Fi Faux Division, each musician had to play a fiddle tune on an instrument that is not a fiddle. The winner was Isaac Bonner, upright bass player, from Omaha.
In the Twin Fiddling Division, two fiddlers had to play a tune together, with one of them playing the melody, and the other playing the harmony. The winners were Lilli Summerlin, from Auburn, and Sharon Roberts-Yuen from Lincoln.
Next year, the 18th Annual Schoolhouse Fiddling Bee will be held on Sunday, October 12, 2014.
