The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley announces that its decades-long tradition of showcasing a Fall farce continues this year with Ray Cooney’s hilarious comedy, “Funny Money.”  The show opens on Saturday, October 15.

Henry Perkins, a mild-mannered CPA has found a briefcase full of cash.  Assuming that it’s ill-gotten booty, Henry rushes home to grab his wife and two one-way tickets to Barcelona.  But, poor Henry is soon beset by not one, but two police detectives investigating unrelated crimes; one involving a dead body thought to be Henry.  With the help of his wife and well-meaning neighbors, Henry begins to weave a steady stream of lies that soon spin out of control.  His seemingly fortuitous find soon has Henry and his friends rushing down a path of utter chaos.  

Starring in the production is Erik Quam of Louisville.  His wife is played by Brandy (Palatas) Hall of Papillion.  Jamion Biesterfeld of Louisville and Wendy Allen of Plattsmouth star as the neighbors who are dragged into the fray.  Rounding out the cast are Jeff Johnson and Tim Sorensen of Elmwood, Giovanni Quezada of Council Bluffs and Guillermo Rosas of La Vista.  “Funny Money” is directed by Kevin Colbert of Weeping Water.

Production dates for the show are October 15, 16, 20-23 and 28-30.  Thursday through Saturday productions begin at 7:30pm.  All Sunday shows are at 2pm.  Tickets are $19 and all seats are reserved.  Reservations can be made by calling the theater at (402) 234-2553 or by visiting their website,
