Dec. 13-16, 17 ‘The Holiday Cabaret’

Nebraska Rep begins new holiday tradition with ‘The Holiday Cabaret’

The Nebraska Repertory Theatre creates a new holiday tradition with "The Holiday Cabaret" Dec. 13-17 in Studio Theatre.
The Nebraska Repertory Theatre creates a new holiday tradition with “The Holiday Cabaret” Dec. 13-17 in Studio Theatre.

The Nebraska Repertory Theatre begins a new holiday tradition this December with “The Holiday Cabaret.” Enjoy holiday standards performed by past Rep performers, emerging artists and our special guests and Chicago’s premiere, sweet-singing female trio, The Lakeshore Dolls.

Performances are Dec. 13-16 at 7:30 p.m. and Dec. 17 at 2 p.m. in the Studio Theatre in the Temple Building. For tickets, contact the Lied Center Box Office at (402) 472-4747 or online at http://www.nebraskarep.org. The show is conceived and directed by Nebraska Repertory Theatre Artistic Director Andy Park.

“One of the things I’m really excited about this cabaret is that it’s actually a really traditional style of cabaret performance,” Park said. “You get comedy, and you get old-fashioned holiday songs and musical styles. People will get a real sort of throwback holiday cabaret experience. There’s just something about this that just feels right for the holidays. It’s like going home to visit with family and friends. It’s warm, and I think it’s going to be a lot of fun for the audience.”

The audience will also be able to enjoy holiday goodies and libations during the performance. There will also be a live band, musically directed by Vince Learned.

“It will be a very typical cabaret-style band with piano, bass and drums,” Park said. “We’ve invested in the band because we want it to be just extraordinary.”

The show will also feature The Lakeshore Dolls, an acapella trio from Chicago whose aesthetic is reminiscent of The Andrews Sisters, who sing music ranging from the 1940s standards to pop hits of today.

“These performers are so tight vocally,” Park said. “They’ve been performing for years. They perform all over the place, and they’re very much in the tradition of The Andrews Sisters. In fact, they’ll do a couple of Andrews Sisters songs, I’m sure.”

The total cast includes 14 people.

“Many of them are some of the top students here in the program,” Park said. “And then we also have a couple of guests, like Dr. Bill Grange, who will be making an appearance. One of the songs he will be singing is ‘You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.’ It’s going to be fun.”

Park will also be performing in The Holiday Cabaret.

“I’m a ventriloquist so I’m going to bring my puppet with me to perform, which will be fun,” he said. “I think it’s going to be a good show.”

There are other surprises in the works as well for the performance, as Park creates what he hopes will be a new holiday tradition for Lincoln.

“The hope is that this is a new holiday tradition, and we’ll mix it up a little bit every year, “Park said. “Hopefully this will be something that the families will realize is here every year and will make it part of their holiday traditions.”

6 Stretches You Can Do in Bed

6 Stretches You Can Do in Bed to Feel Great All Day

A hectic life has become the norm these days. And it all starts from the moment we get out of bed, launching right into our busy day. But, taking just a few minutes for yourself before you race to get into the shower, have breakfast and start plowing through your to-do-list can be beneficial for both body and mind. Try these 6 simple stretches before you crawl out from under the covers to help you set the right tone for the day ahead.

in Lincoln – BURNING LEAVES AND YARD WASTE IS ILLEGAL

State law requires that grass and leaves be separated from household trash from April 1 until December 1, and the City reminds residents that burning leaves and yard waste is illegal within Lincoln City limits.  Those convicted of open burning are subject to a maximum fine of $500 and up to six months in jail.

Chris Schroeder, supervisor of the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department (LLCHD) Air Quality Program, said that older adults and young children are especially sensitive to air pollution.  “Burning creates a fire hazard and produces air pollution that can lead to health complications for people with asthma, lung disease, other respiratory conditions or heart disease,” he said.

In Lincoln, separate collection of grass and leaves is provided by local waste haulers for a fee.  Those who do not subscribe to the special collection have three options:

  • Haul it to the North 48th Street Transfer Station, 5101 N. 48th St.  All loads must be covered and secured.
  • Hire a lawn service.
  • Mulch and compost grass clippings and leaves.

Grass and leaves must be placed in approved containers: paper yard waste bags available from retailers; 32-gallon containers with tight-fitting lids; or 95-gallon containers provided by waste haulers.  The City does not allow yard waste in plastic bags at the compost facility because the bags do not decompose and cause litter problems.  Residents can place their grass and leaves with their household trash from December 1 through March 31.  Tree limbs, garden waste and weeds may be included with regular household garbage year-round, but some refuse haulers require that limbs be cut to certain lengths and bundled.

More information on recycling is available at 402-441-8215 and recycle.lincoln.ne.gov.  More information on air quality regulations or open burning permits is available by contacting Schroeder at 402-441-6272 or cschroeder@lincoln.ne.gov.  For more information about LLCHD, visit health.lincoln.ne.gov.

REPATRIATING REMAINS TO THE PONCA TRIBE OF NEBRASKA

NEBRASKA STATE HISTORICAL SOCIETY TO REPATRIATE REMAINS AND OBJECTS TO THE PONCA TRIBE OF NEBRASKA – Transfer to be Completed November 22nd. The skeletal remains of 10 individuals along with about 300 funerary objects will be repatriated to the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska on November 22nd. The transfer is being conducted by the Nebraska State Historical Society’s State Archeology Office and the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska under the requirements of the federal Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act and the Nebraska Unmarked Human Burial Sites and Skeletal Remains Protection Act.

All remains and objects, many being glass beads, date back to the 1700s and 1800s. They were inadvertently discovered during construction projects in Knox, Platte, and Butler counties. When human skeletal remains and burial goods are discovered and law enforcement determines a crime is not involved, Nebraska State Historical Society Archeology staff will be contacted by the appropriate county attorney’s office. Staff members are required to conduct an on-site investigation to determine the origin and identity of the remains and promptly relate the findings in writing to the county attorney and interested parties, who may include: a descendant Indian Tribe, a descendant family, or the Nebraska Indian Commission.

This specific repatriation is a joint project of the Nebraska State Historical Society, The Nebraska Commission on Indian Affairs, and the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska. Tribal members of the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska will reclaim and prepare the remains for transfer and reburial in the Ponca homeland along the lower Niobrara River.
