Lofte Annual Meeting and

Volunteer Recognition February 28

Manley, NE [February 15, 2016] -  The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley has announced that it will hold its annual meeting and volunteer recognition event on Sunday, February 28 at 2pm.  2016 marks the 40th season for the theater and this year is being touted as the “Ruby Jubilee.”  

The Board of Directors invites anyone who has volunteered their time (ushers, parkers, actors, set-builders, etc.) made a donation or even attended a show over the years.  This is a family-friendly event and children are welcome.  Refreshments will be served.

Lofte Artistic Director Kevin Colbert says, “The memories of the last forty years are like a tidal wave, so many people, so many stories and so much history.  However, my greatest satisfaction is seeing the family and friends of a performer rush the stage after a show and tell an actor how much they enjoyed a performance.  It’s a feeling of self worth that can last someone a lifetime.”

Lofte Treasurer Ken Patry will present financials.  Ticket Booth Manager, Jean Colbert will give an attendance report.  Elections will be held for board vacancies.  Kevin Colbert will review 2015 and present previews of 2016 and 2017 seasons.  The Lofte will also acknowledge the three most valued volunteers for the past year.
