“Nana’s Naughty Knickers” on Display at the Lofte!

Manley, NE [September 25, 2015] -  The Lofte Community Theatre announces the opening of their next production, “Nana’s Naughty Knickers,” on Saturday, October 10 at 7:30pm.  Written by Katherine DiSavino, the script is a fast-paced comedic farce that has become the Lofte’s fall tradition.  

Bridget is a young woman who is about to become roommates with her sweet little Grandma in a rent-controlled apartment in New York City.  However, what Bridget first saw as an easy opportunity quickly turns into mayhem.  It seems that sweet little Nana is running an illegal boutique from their apartment, selling naughty hand-made lingerie to local senior citizens.  

Alyssa DiPaolo of Lincoln and Shari Hoelker of Omaha play Bridget and her grandmother, respectively.  Rounding out the cast are Brenda Jones of Louisville, Ross Mumford, Jestin Jones and Shelia Hansen of Lincoln, Wendy Allen and Melinda Mead of Plattsmouth and Jeff Johnston and Ken Snyder both of Elmwood.  The production is directed by Kevin Colbert.

The production runs October 10, 11, 15-18 and 23-25.  Thursday through Saturday evening shows begin at 7:30pm.  Sunday performances are 2pm matinees.  Tickets are $19 with special discounts offered to groups of twenty or more.  The Lofte is located near the town of Manley in Cass County.  Those interested in tickets should call the Lofte box office at 402-234-2553 or visit their website,
