The Lincoln Community Playhouse moves outdoors
Arts Organization are taking a terrible blow during the pandemic, but many are finding creative solutions. The Lincoln Community Theatre has taken a creative 'if they can't come to the play, take the play to them' approach. They are beginning Parking Lot Plays in July. “We are headed to the parking lot to begin to ease our way back into performances," stated Morrie Enders, Executive Director. The theatre will present a combination of cabaret performances, old-time radio, and a melodrama throughout July and August in the parking lot.
Guests will sit in their cars or right outside their cars and tune to a FM signal broadcast by the Playhouse to hear the performances. Masks will be required when moving about or when in close proximity to others. Due to limited space, all audience members must reserve their space by calling the box office at 402-489-7529, between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday beginning July 1st. Admission is a free will donation. A waiting list will also be taken.
Shows are between 30 minutes and an hour and are performed without intermission. All programming starts at 6:00 p.m. The parking lot opens for parking at 5:00 p.m. Parking instructions and Playhouse protocols will be communicated after a reservation is made. Here is the lineup:
July 30 - Jocelyn Tisdale and Zeph Siebler
August 3 - “Mamma Mia Reunion” Julie Enersen, Teri Wilson, and Colleen Bade
August 5 - "Mamma Mia Reunion" Julie Enersen, Teri Wilson, and Colleen Bade
