 "Crazy For You" Opens at Lofte Theatre
The Lofte Community Theatre near Manley is excited to announce the continuation of its thirty-third season with the energetic Musical Comedy, "Crazy For You" opening on July 17th.  "Crazy For You" is often referred to as "The new Gershwin Musical Comedy."  Debuting on Broadway in 1992, it later won the Tony Award for Best Musical that year.  The show relies entirely upon the  music of George Gershwin who died in 1937.  "Crazy" has all of the traditional elements of a classic Broadway show of the early 20th century; toe-tapping tunes, boy-gets-girl storyline and a comic ensemble cast.
 Written by Ken Ludwig, the story is set during the theater scene of the 1930s.  Bobby Child is a wealthy banker's son and socialite playboy whose real dream in life is to dance.  Bobby is sent to a rundown theater in Nevada by his domineering mother for the purpose of foreclosing on the dilapidated venue.  Instead, Bobby falls in love with a girl, the theater and decides to put on a show to pay off the mortgage.  Singing cowboys, spunky heroines and an unwanted fiancee round out the cast of colorful characters.
Starring in his first leading role as Bobby Child is Adam Kovar of Lincoln.  The plucky Polly Baker is played by Elizabeth Monzingo of Papillion.  Other members of the cast include Jeff Johnston, Ross Mumford and Wade Mumford of Elmwood; Anne Riha of Louisville;  Melinda Mead of Plattsmouth; Mimi Ostmann of Eagle; Lucy Myrtue of Murray; Samantha Colbert of Weeping Water; Ronnie Hurlbut, Marikita Payne, Olivia Herr, Sydney Timmons, Megan Kovar, Margaret Anne White, Mark Kranz, Alex White, Zack Schafer and Mick Kovar of Lincoln; and Derek Kowal, Anna Cashero and Levi Stroebel all of Omaha.
Performance Dates for "Crazy For You" are July 17-19, 23-26, 30, 31 and August 1, 2.  Showtimes are 7:30pm Thursday-Saturday.  All Sunday dates have two performances; 2pm and 7:30pm. General admission tickets can be purchased either on-line or by contacting the box office at (402) 234-2553. Please note that some performances are nearly sold-out and advance reservations are highly suggested.
