Lofte Community Theatre to Honor Volunteers


On Saturday, February 26 at 6pm the Lofte Community Theatre in Manley will honor its volunteers and hold their annual business meeting. Actors, ushers, painters, donors and friends are all invited to participate in this special event.  Lofte officers will present Lofte financials and plans for the future.  A complimentary Italian meal and refreshments will be provided.


The Lofte is a non-profit organization and as such is heavily dependent upon its army of volunteers.  During the course of the evening, those with outstanding service during the past year will be recognized by the "Dale Crosby Awards."  Mr. Crosby was a long-time chairman of the Lofte Board of Directors.  His willingness to tackle any duty at the theater served as an inspiration to others.  Over the many years of his service, he performed, cleaned and took on administrative tasks.  Mr. Crosby passed away in 2001.


Lofte Artistic Director Kevin Colbert will announce upcoming show selections and share some of the behind the scenes antics that he witnessed during the 2010 season.


Those who are planning to attend are asked to RSVP by calling the theater at (402) 234-2553.
