"Cliffhanger" opens Labor Day Weekend
Manley, NE [August 17, 2011] - Combine the warmth and charm of "On Golden Pond" with the plot twists of "Deathtrap." Cliffhanger is an old-fashioned thriller with a little bit of heartbreak and hearty laughs.
This comedy/thriller, written by James Yaffe is the story of Henry Lowenthal (Bob Pinkerton of Weeping Water) who is looking forward to being appointed to an endowed chair position at his small college so that he and his wife can enjoy their golden years with honor. However, their plans are given a jolt when a ruthlessly ambitious woman informs Henry that she is not recommending him for the chair position.
Directed by Kevin Colbert, the cast also includes Cheryl Grimshaw and Melinda Mead of Plattsmouth, Joshua P. Smith of La Vista and Benjimam Pettiford of Lincoln.
Murder! Mayhem! Blackmail! Find these things and more at the Lofte Community Theatre September 3, 4, 9-11, and 15-18. Tickets are $17. Please contact the Lofte box office at (402) 234-2553 or purchase online at www.Lofte.com.
