“Leading Ladies” Opens June 3rd
The Lofte will be opening the hilarious comedy, “Leading Ladies” on Friday, June 3 at 7:30pm. This show is written by Ken Ludwig. He’s the same playwright who has given us, “Lend Me a Tenor,” “Moon Over Buffalo,” and “Crazy For You.” “Leading Ladies" is the story of two down-and-out Shakespearean actors in the 1950s. They come up with the idea to run a con on an aging heiress and pose as her two long-lost relatives. However, they quickly learn that the con must be pulled off as women! This high-energy farce and fast-paced confusion will keep you in stitches.
Starring as the two Shakespearean con artists are Joshua P. Smith of Omaha and Scott Seelhoff of Fremont. Also in the production are Brenna Thompson of Lincoln, Kevin Holdorf of Manley, Dan Sedlacek of Papillion, Alexandra Suslow-Geditz of Omaha, and Casey Wagner and Shakeida Bullis both of Bellevue. The show is directed by Kevin Colbert of Weeping Water.
