“The Man Who Came to Dinner” at Lofte Theatre
Manley, NE [May 19, 2017] - The Lofte's second production of the year takes us back to small-town Ohio in the 1930s. Sheridan Whiteside ("Sherry" to his friends) is a famously outlandish New York City radio personality who has been invited to dine at the home of the well-to-do Stanley family. But disaster strikes before he enters the house. Whiteside slips on the ice and injures his hip!
What started out as a one-night event soon turns into a month-long convalescence. Confined to the house, Sherry drives his hosts mad by viciously insulting them, monopolizing their house, running up large phone bills, and receiving many bizarre guests, including paroled convicts.
This classic American script has enjoyed several revivals on Broadway and the London stage and was made into a feature film in 1942 starring Bette Davis, Jimmy Durante and Monty Woolly.
Ken Snyder of Elmwood is playing the irascible Sheridan Whiteside. He is joined on stage by Brenda Jones (Louisville) and Tim Sorensen (Elmwood) playing his hosts, Mr. and Mrs. Stanley. Rosalie Duffy (Lincoln) and Doug Rothgeb (Omaha) play the star-crossed Maggie Cutler and Bert Jefferson. Rounding out the cast are Dustin Reckling (Louisville), Jean Wymore (Syracuse), Jessica and Rita McKinney, Ken Patry and Trish Miller (Omaha), Cheryl and Will Jones (Manley), Tom Lucas (Papillion), Jeff Johnston (Elmwood), Mike Brown (Firth), Jim Skrobo (Elkhorn), Aubree Sweeney and Millard Carnes (Plattsmouth), Guillermo Rosas (La Vista), Zeke Rouse (Murray), Brenna Thompson, Nick Roth (Lincoln), John Bell and Dan Roberg (Omaha) and Shawn Reynolds (Bellevue). The production is directed by Kevin Colbert.
"The Man Who Came to Dinner" runs June 2-4 and 8-11. Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances are at 7pm. Sunday performances begin at 2pm. Those interested in tickets may call the box office at 402-234-2553 or visit Lofte.org for online purchasing. All seats are reserved and ticket price is $19.
