The Lofte Community Theatre, located at 15841 Manley Rd, Manley, NE will stage the ice fishing musical, Guys on Ice by Fred Alley and James Kaplan October 13-14, 19-21, 25-28.
Set in Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin (a real place), on shores of Green Bay and Lake Michigan, Guys on Ice spends a day in the life of Marvin and Lloyd — fishing buddies and homegrown philosophers. With musical numbers like, “Ode to a Snowmobile Suit”, “The Wishing Hole,” “Fish is the Miracle Food” and “The One That Got Away,” Guys on Ice is not only an anthropological study, but a great musical comedy as well.
“While Manley, Nebraska may not exactly be the first place you think of when it comes to ice fishing, we are so excited to bring this endearing, and very popular little musical to life. What’s even more exciting, is that The Lofte is the first theatre in the state of Nebraska to produce Guys on Ice. This is a very big deal for our theatre and our audiences! And I guarantee our audiences are going to love this production.” said Lofte Community Theatre Artistic Director, Kevin Colbert.
The cast of Guys on Ice includes Lofte Community Theatre stage veterans Scott Pope of Eagle, Doug Rothgeb of Omaha, and Jon Kruse of Plattsmouth (last seen in this season’s The Odd Couple). The show is directed by Lofte Artistic Director, Kevin Colbert.
