Military Orchestra Graces Lofte Stage

Click HERE for Details
The Lofte Community Theatre is proud to be hosting its first orchestral concert.  On Sunday, December 7th at 2pm, the 43rd Army Band from Lincoln will present a one-hour concert. The sixty-member orchestra will fill the entire Lofte stage. The concert will include patriotic selections, marches and emphasize holiday music. The concert is free and open to the public – no ticket is required for admission.

The 43rd's members are citizen soldiers who bring a wide variety of skills, talents and longevity to the unit. The members' various civilian jobs and experiences contribute a great deal to the overall success of the 43rd Army Band. This group meets one weekend a month and 15 days during the summer to rehearse and to fulfill military training requirements.

Officially, the band traces its history back to 1924 when it was created in Crete, Nebraska as the "Band Section, Service Company 110th Medical Regiment." The band went through several reorganizations and on March 3, 1948, the band was federally recognized as the 43rd Army Band. Over the years, they have not only won several music competitions, but also received many designations for overall excellence as well as tropies for Outstanding Company.

The Lofte has hosted other military groups in the past, one as recently as this November. However, when given the chance to host such an impressive group, the Lofte jumped at the chance. We welcome everyone in the surrounding communities to join us for our first Christmas Symphony. It's sure to be a memorable event for years to come.
The Lofte Community Theatre is a 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization supported in part by The Cooper Foundation, The Midlands Community Foundation, and the Cass County Visitors Promotion Committee.  The Lofte Community Theatre is dedicated to providing opportunities for area residents of all ages and those in surrounding communities to participate in the creation process and companionship of live theatre in rural Nebraska and to enjoy the social, artistic, and educational benefits of this art form.

Theatre To Perform Nebraska
Premiere of Forever Plaid Tidings

The TADA Theatre, recent recipient of the Downtown Lincoln Association's Impact Award, will present the Nebraska premiere of the holiday hit, Forever Plaid Tidings opening December 4th.


In this new holiday sequel to the mega-hit Forever Plaid, Jinx, Frankie, Smudge and Sparky, (The Plaids) young male crooners from the '50s who usually reside in heaven, are called back to Earth to stage a nostalgic holiday extravaganza. The group tune their heavenly harmonies on holiday songs and carols, along with a hilarious tribute to The Ed Sullivan Christmas Spectaculars featuring the Rockettes, the Chipmunks and The Vienna Boys Choir. Topping it off is the boys’ spirited montage, A Plaid Caribbean Christmas, which puts the “Day-O” in Excelsis! 


Since Its recent release, Plaid Tidings is growing in equal popularity with its predecessor, Forever Plaid, after having made its premiere at the Pasadena Playhouse.  Forever Plaid was performed in New York in 1990 and now is one of the most popular musicals produced internationally. Both shows were written by Stuart Ross. “Plaid Tidings, the Christmas version of the popular musical Forever Plaid, is a perfect show to get you into the mood for the holidays.” – Las Vegas Sun
Playing the roles of the Plaids are Steve Pearson, Alex Walker, Bret Olsen and Buddy Miller. The production is directed by Robert D. Rook with musical direction by Cris Rook, scenic design and stage management by Eric Underwood, and accompaniment by Denis V. Plutalov.

Forever Plaid Tidings is on stage for three weeks only December 4-7 / December 11-14 / December 18-21 with curtain times at 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $18 (Thu.- Sat.) and $15 (Sunday matinees). Tickets can be reserved by calling The TADA Theatre's box office at (402) 438-TADA (8232) or on-line at www.tadatheatre.info. Patrons are encouraged to bring donations for the Food Bank of Lincoln for this production.
The new TADA Theatre is located in the beautiful Creamery Building at 7th & P Streets in the historic Haymarket district of Lincoln, Nebraska. It features a Main Stage that plays host to the musicals and full-length theatrical productions that patrons have come to expect from TADA. With close parking, a grand lobby, and amenities for patrons and actors, this intimate, crowd-pleasing theatre is operated by its parent company TADA Productions, Inc., a recipient of the 2006 Mayor's Arts Award, that also produces the productions at the new location. 

This show is brought to the stage with generous support from Wayne's Body Shop. For a production photo or interviews with the cast or production staff, please contact 402-438-TADA (8232) or showinfo@tadaproductions.info.

20 Flags Over Main Street
Happy Holidays from Louisville Merchants
BUILD President 
Terri Scholting
  and the BUILD Presentation Committee Chair Kathy Copple
Present Our New Main Street Flags! 


At Tuesday Morning's BUIL D Meeting, Terri Scholting announced that the City Workers would be installing today, our new

Main Street Holiday Flags!

For those of you that missed the last few BUILD Meetings, this was another inspired minor miracle, and a real tribute to President Scholting's determination to have "Everything Louisville", be the best that it can be!

One of the many challenges that the BUILD Presentation Committee faced this fall, was our aged and distressed Main Street flags. Each year OPPD lets the City display our colorful flags from the light poles during the "Ringing in the Season" Holiday Event. Kathy Copple, BUILD Presentation Committee Chair expressed concern as to the poor condition of the flags and our lack of options given the expense of the huge Louisville Lights project recently completed.

Mandi Chubb, Ringing in the Season 2008 Event Chair has our special Christmas celebration  ready! The table is set and it would be so much better to greet our Louisville visitors with a smartly festooned Main Street.

Working with an agitated state of urgency, Terri, Kathy, Mandi and others assembled resources, researched and vetted a new flag vendor and in a matter of days produced an elegant solution - funded completely by  the Louisville businesses that stepped forward to foot the bill.



"So, What's the Big Deal?"

My 2 Cents Worth:

We are living in interesting times. Everything in our world is now changing, at least a little, mostly a lot, and frequently seasoned with high drama.

Strap in, it is gonna be a bumpy ride!

 Our little City is doing great! There is prosperity, growth, expansion, a new contract to supply water to our neighboors, outstanding leadership, creative and sparkly new energy from BUILD folks and the future looks wonderfully bright!

This weekend is very important, as we show our visitors and neighbors we are doing great, and that Louisville definitely has it going on!

So, what difference do a few light pole flags make? Everything.

People notice if a button is left undone, a shoe-lace un-tied, people notice the attention to detail, and the pride that radiates from a Main Street  that is

"Properly Dressed"

In these "Interesting Times" it is more important then ever to put our very best face on, welcome our guests, smile and remind our Visitors: This is LOUISVILLE!

It is great to live in the Midwest, even greater to live in Cass County, but best of all it is grand here South of the Platte in Louisville - so --
