Simon's Classic, "The Sunshine Boys" in Manley
The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley announces that it will begin its thirty-sixth season with Neil Simon's classic stage play, "The Sunshine Boys." The show opens on Saturday, May 26th.
The story revolves around the vaudeville comedy team, "Lewis and Clark." Al and Willie were top-billed comedians for over forty years. Now they aren't even speaking. When CBS approaches them for a "History of Comedy" retrospective, the grudging reunion brings the two back together along with a flood of memories, miseries and laughs. Many may remember the 1975 film version featuring Walter Matthau and George Burns.
Directed by Kevin Colbert, the show stars Bob Pinkerton of Weeping Water and newcomer, Ken Snyder of Elmwood. Also starring in the show are Scott Nielsen of Eagle, Tim Sorensen of Elmwood, Millard Carnes and Jennifer Harvey of Plattsmouth and Megan Homan of Springfield.
Performance dates are May 26, 27, June 1-3 and 7-10. Curtain times Thursday-Saturday are 7:30pm. Sunday performances are 2pm matinees. Tickets are still available for all shows. Reserved seats are $17. Those interested can call the box office at 402-234-2553.
