2020 Season Productions
By Norm Foster
NEW Performance Dates to be Determined
Six seemingly different stories unfold across a major city on a Friday
afternoon. As the stories unfold we see the tiny details that somehow connect each story to the next. In true Norm Foster style, Office Hours makes us laugh at our humanity. Office Hours is an unconventional race to quitting time. Mr. Foster also wrote Hilda’s Yard, the comedic hit from The Lofte’s 2018 season.
Life With Father

Becky's New Car
By Steven Dietz
Performances: September 4-6, 10-13
Auditions: July 19 & 20 @ 7 PM
We find Becky Foster stuck in middle age, middle management at a car dealership, and a middling marriage—with no prospects for change on the horizon. That is until one night when inept millionaire stumbles into the dealership where she works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life...and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun! The Lofte’s Director’s Choice of 2020 is a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken.
(The play contains strong language. We suggest PG 13.)

The Styckes-Upon-Thump Repertory Theatre Company, a stuffy traveling troupe from England, has embarked on its “fifteenth annual farewell tour” of the classic Dickens tale. Mayhem ensues as the professional company attempts to keep the show going as everything that could go wrong does go wrong, to hilarious, absurd results.
