'Ethan Claymore' Opens Winter Season at Mahoney State Park
Together, Mahoney State Park and KBC Productions announce that the Christmas production, 'Ethan Claymore,' will be playing this month at the Kountze Memorial Theater. Show dates are December 20-22 and 26-30. All shows begin at 7:30pm except for Sundays which are 2pm matinees.
Written by Norm Foster, 'Ethan Claymore' is the story of a man who needs to get his life back on track in time to celebrate the season. Ethan can't seem to find any holiday cheer, and what's worse is he's on the verge of bankruptcy. With the help of his neighbor, a local school teacher, and his brother, Ethan tries to find his Christmas spirit and save his farm. The warmth of a Norman Rockwell painting mixed with just a touch of Seinfeld, Ethan Claymore will be a delight for the whole family this holiday season.
Directed by Samantha Colbert of Lincoln, the play features Doug and Matthew Rothgeb of Omaha, Harold Scott of Lincoln, Brandy Palatas of Papilllion, Aaron Spracklin of Elmwood, and Kevin Holdorf of Manley. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for children under 12. Call Mahoney State Park at 402-994-2523 extension 7122 to make reservations.
