Mel Brooks' Hit, 'The Producers' at the Lofte Community Theatre
Mel Brooks' classic tale of Broadway shenanigans, 'The Producers' is playing at the Lofte Community Theatre in Manley.
Main characters Max Biailystock (played by Harold L. Scott of Lincoln) and Leo Bloom (played by Cory Misek also of Lincoln) along with voluptuous Ulla (played by Emma Rasmussen of Omaha) take the audience on a ramp of outrageous in-your-face humor. Classic songs include, 'Springtime for Hilter,' 'Keep it Gay,' 'When You Got It, Flaunt It.' Kevin Colbert of Weeping Water is Artistic Director. Betty Colbert is the Musical Director and Noelle Bohaty is choreographer. We suggest PG-13 for this show.
Production dates are July 25-28 and August 1-4. Ticket prices are $18. All shows begin at 7:30pm except of Sunday afternoons which are 2pm matinees. Reservations can be made by calling the Lofte box office at 402-234-2553 or purchased online at www.Lofte.com
Mark your calendars: The 2013 Cass County Fair dates are August 6-10, 2013.
