Reserve Your Turkey Now for Thanksgiving!
Are you needing a turkey for your Thanksgiving dinner? The holidays are right around the corner and we’d like to help you get a head start on your holiday plans!
The Elmwood-Murdock Post Prom Committee is hosting a turkey fundraiser, in conjunction with Norbest. Purchase a 12, 16 or 20 pound turkey, and we will issue you a certificate to present to a local grocer for your holiday turkey.
The Market to Market race came through Murdock and Elmwood Saturday. Runners started in the Old Market in Omaha and ran a relay to the Haymarket in Lincoln. Marie Gregoire is credited with organizing locals to help make the passage through our towns easier for the runners. She also organized lunch bags for the runners to buy with the proceeds to benefit the Elmwood Park. They raised $1500 for park improvements. This is where the funds came from to pay for the new basketball court in the park. Volunteers who helped Marie with this event were Jeff Clymer, Hank and Teddy Clymer, Erin Clymer, Rick Hawks, Teresa Hawks, Eugenia Bornemeier, Tammy Brummer, Thomas Burtch, Annette Eggert, Cole Eggert, Tommie Eggert, Kylee Synovec, Lyndsey Spracklin, and Julie Synovec. Some of these volunteers have worked the event for many years. The local fire departments also helped out by directing traffic and making the crossings safe for the runners. Over 6,500 runners participated in this event.

Hitchcock Based, “Wrong Window” Opens at Lofte
The hilarious Hitchcock-inspired farce, “ Wrong Window!” will open on the Lofte Community Theatre’s stage on October 11. The script is written by the successful writing team of Van Zandt and Milmore whose other works include “Love, Sex and the I.R.S.,” and “Suitehearts.”
New York couple Marnie and Jeff think their neighbor has killed his wife. However, the woman’s body soon disappears and the bumbling witnesses sneak into the cross-courtyard apartment to solve the mystery. In all, there are over 30 script references to the works and characters in Alfred Hitchcock films. Can you spot them all?
The production is directed by and stars Kevin Colbert as Jeff. His wife Marnie is played by Brandy Palatas of Papillion. Rounding out the cast are Scott Pope and Scott Nielsen of Eagle, Melinda Mead of Plattsmouth, John Bell and Ken Patry of Omaha, and Jeff Johnston and Ken Snyder of Elmwood. Alyssa DiPaolo of Lincoln gives a stunning performance as the dead body.
Performance dates for “Wrong Window!” are October 11, 12, 17-19 and 24-26. Friday and Saturday curtain times are at 7:30pm. All Sunday performances are 2pm matinees. Tickets are $19 and reservations can be made by calling the box office at 402-234-2553. The Lofte Community Theatre is located just east of Hwy 50 near the town of Manley.

Auditions at Lofte Community Theatre
Manley, NE [October 3, 2014] - Artistic Director Kevin Colbert will be holding open auditions on the Lofte’s main stage for the holiday production, “Christmas Belles.” Auditions will be held on October 20 and 21 at 7pm and will consist of cold readings from the script.
The story calls for 4 men and 7 women. Those planning to audition should bring a smile and a list of possible schedule conflicts. Rehearsals will begin at the first of November and production dates are December 6, 7, 12-14 and 19-21.
Christmas Belles” is the sequel to the Lofte’s season opener, “Dearly Beloved.” In this story, a church Christmas program spins hilariously out of control in true Southern style. The Futurelle Sisters are not exactly in a festive mood. Cranky Frankie is pregnant and weeks overdue with her second set of twins. Twink is in jail for inadvertently burning down half of Fayro, TX and hot-flash-suffering Honey Raye is desperately trying to keep the Christmas program from spiraling into chaos.
The Lofte is located just east of the town of Manley. Those with questions about the audition process may call the Lofte at (402) 234-2553.
