The Lofte Community Theatre is proud to partner with Outlook Nebraska, a non-profit dedicated to positively impact everyone who is blind or visually impaired, to offer live performances with Audio Description!
"Audio description allows those with low vision to more fully enjoy live performances and events through a verbal description. A single earpiece is connected to a personal headset receiver that lets you listen to a trained audio describer verbally depict the action on stage as it happens. Only you will be able to hear the voice of the describer."

Becky's New Car
By Steven Dietz
AD Performance: Sunday, September 13th @ 2 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.)
By Norm Foster
AD Performance: Sunday, October 18th @ 2 PM
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.
A Dickens Christmas Carol
By Mark Landon Smith
AD Performance: Sunday, December 13th @ 2 PM
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.
