A riotously funny Southern comedy. Three Verdeen cousins could not have picked a worse time to throw their family reunion. A parade of wildly eccentric Verdeens gathers on the hottest day of July in the middle of Texas tornado season. You'll wish your family reunions were this much fun!

However, the police soon arrive, as does a detective thinking that Henry is dead. The high-energy fall farce is here and it's "Funny Money!"

“76 Trombones” and 53 Actors Star in Meredith Willson’s “The Music Man” on Lofte Stage!

Manley, NE [July 5, 2016] - The Lofte Community Theatre near Manley announces it will be showcasing the Meredith Willson’s classic, “The Music Man,” starting on July 22.  Winner of five Tonys in 1958 including Best Musical and best Actor and Actress, “The Music Man” is the tale of smooth-talking Harold Hill.  He arrives in River City, Iowa to pull-off his tried-and-true scheme of cheating the community with a scam to equip and train a boys’ marching band.  However, things go awry when he falls for the town’s lovely librarian and inadvertently enriches the town with a love of music.

The Lofte last visited “The Music Man” in 1978.  At that time the Born-in-a-Barn players were working out of a renovated barn with no air conditioning and outdoor bathrooms.  Now 38 years later, audiences and the fifty-three member cast have the luxury of  a climate controlled theater space that seats over three hundred!

Playing the sly Harold Hill is Lofte newcomer, Chris Berger of Louisville.  The lovely Marian the librarian is played by Catherine Bobst of Lincoln.  Matthew Hansen of Papillion plays Harold’s old friend Marcellus.  Greg Leger of Omaha and Brenda Jones of Louisville play the River City Mayor and his wife.  Little Winthrop (Marian’s cute little brother) is played by newcomer Jude Glaser of Papillion.  Artistic Director Kevin Colbert has selected a group of the region’s best acting and vocal talent from far and wide to round-out the cast.  

Production dates for the show are July 22-24, 28-31 and August 5-7.  Thursday through Saturday curtain times are at 7:30pm.  All Sunday performances are 2pm matinees.  All seats are reserved and cost $19 each.  The Lofte Theatre is offering special discounts to groups of 25 or more.  Tickets are available online at or by calling the box office at 402.234.2553.
