On Sunday, April 14, at 2:30 PM, Greenblatt & Seay presents their original mini-musical, "Noah's Ark."
“Noah’s Ark” is a lively adaptation of the story of Noah and the great flood. This unique Greenblatt & Seay production explores the fate of the humans and other animals on the ark, from the day they boarded, to the day they disembarked. The words, by David Seay, examine the relationships between the inhabitants of the ark, and how they managed to survive from one unpredictable day to the next. The music, by Deborah Greenblatt, suggests many of the globes great musical traditions, such as blues, Cajun, calypso, Klezmer, a “Gilbert & Sullivan”-style jig, a tango, and even a round. Greenblatt & Seay & Friends will be singing and playing a variety of instruments during the performance, including a 5-string fiddle, harmonica, guitar, tiple, bouzouki.
The historic Old Avoca Schoolhouse was built in 1925, and has been the home of the Schoolhouse Performance Series since 1990. Music lessons, workshops, fiddle camps, and field trips are offered by Schoolhouse residents, Greenblatt & Seay, and are available by appointment.

The British are coming! The British are coming! The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley announces the production, "Yesterday and Today!" will be on the Lofte stage Saturday, April 20 at 7:30pm and Sunday, April 21 at 2pm. Tribute artist and Nebraska native, Billy McGuigan will lead the interactive Beatles experience. In this electrifying show, audiences create the playlist so each performance is fresh and unique. There are no costumes or wigs; just great music in a wonderfully beautiful setting.

Library staff can help you print tax forms from either the IRS or the Nebraska Department of Revenue web pages, but there will be a 10 cents per page charge for any forms printed. Staff can help you find specific forms, but staff can't offer any tax advice regarding which forms you may need.
