“Picasso at the Lapin Agile,”
KBC productions announces that the second play in its winter season, “Picasso at the Lapin Agile,” opens on Friday, January 22 at Mahoney State Park.
“Picasso at the Lapin Agile,” is written by Steve Martin. Most famous for his comedic skits and appearances in many movies and television shows, Mr. Martin wrote the script in 1993. The comedy places Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso in a Parisian café in 1904, just before Einstein transformed the world of academia with his theory of relativity and before Picasso set the art world on fire with cubism. This fictional tale sees two geniuses discussing the century’s achievements as well as many other fanciful topics. You will be treated to giggles aplenty and moments of sheer enlightenment. Staff suggests a PG13 rating for this show.
The show is produced by Kevin Colbert and directed by Katherine Cover, both of Weeping Water. The rest of the cast includes William M. Cover II and Timron Gilfert of Weeping Water, Noelle Bohaty, Clay Stevens, Kyle Lorenz, Mellisa Marinovich, Travis Triplett and Grant Covney all of Lincoln; Kevin Holdorf of Manley; and Cynthia Sheldon of Elmwood.
The production runs January 22, 23, 28-30, February 4-6, 10-14 and 18-20. Curtain times are 7:30pm except for Sundays which are 2pm matinees. Tickets are $8 for adults and $6 for children. A state park sticker or purchase of a day pass is required for entrance into the park. For reservations, please call Mahoney State Park at (402) 944-2523 ext. 7122.
Manley, NE [January 5, 2011]- The Lofte Community Theatre near Manley will hold auditions for “Leaving Iowa” on January 31 and February 1 at 7pm. The production requires three men and three women. Auditions will consist of cold readings from the script. The production will be directed by Kevin Colbert of Weeping Water.
“Leaving Iowa” is the story of Don Browning, a middle-aged writer who decides it is finally time to take his father’s ashes to his childhood home. But when Don discovers that Grandma’s house is now a grocery store, he begins traveling across Iowa searching for a proper resting place for his father. The father-and-son road trip shifts smoothly from the present to Don’s memories of the annual tortuous vacations of his childhood.
The production will serve as the Lofte’s entry in the upcoming Nebraska Association of Community Theaters competition March 18-20. It will also be the 2011 season opener for the Lofte with performance dates on May 28, 29, June 3-5 and 9-12.

Quote of the week:
You already know.
-- Alan Cohen
A SHORT STORY
John received a parrot as a gift. This parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. John tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by doing anything he could think of to "clean up" the bird's vocabulary. Finally, John was fed up and yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back. So John grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer.
For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed. Then there was total quiet. The bird didn’t even peep for over a minute. John got worried and quickly opened the freezer door. The parrot calmly stepped out onto John's outstretched arms and said, "I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I'm sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior."
Then the parrot said, "May I ask what the turkey did?"
Do you need to change some way you act? Look around you and learn from others why you should change as you live positive.
