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.”

Nebraska Repertory Theatre   ABIGAIL/1702

The Nebraska Repertory Theatre, the state’s only regional professional theatre, associated with the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film in the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, launches its first year-round season September 30, 2017 with ABIGAIL/1702 by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.

October 11, 12, 13 at 7:30 pm and October 8, 15 at 2:00 pm in the Lied Center’s Johnny Carson Theater. Tickets are available through the Lied Center Ticket Office at 301 North 12th Street, 402-472-4747 or 800-432-3231 Monday through Friday from 11:00 am to 5:30 pm, or online at http://www.liedcenter.org. A five-show season ticket is $120, $60 for students and member of OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute). Individual tickets for ABIGAIL/1702 are $30, $15 for students and OLLI members.

The Nebraska Repertory Theatre, affiliated with the Actors’ Equity Association, has been on hiatus since its final summer season in 2014. A new collaboration between the Nebraska Repertory Theatre and the Lied Center for Performing Arts, and a merger of the Nebraska Rep and University Theatre begins with ABIGAIL/1702. According to Park, “Nebraska Rep is thrilled to kick-off our 49th year with a bold new vision. For decades, we’ve served Lincoln as a professional summer repertory theatre. We are pleased to announce that we are now a year-round theatre. The theme of our season this year is Classics Reimagined. Not only are we reimagining Nebraska Repertory Theatre and expanding our season, but all of our shows this year tell familiar stories in a new way.”

ABIGAIL/1702     Ten years after The Crucible’s infamous seductress, Abigail Williams, danced with the devil in Salem, darkness returns. As she cares for a young sailor on the brink of death, a mysterious stranger from Abigail’s past catches up with her, sending her on one final, suspense-filled quest for redemption.

Park explains the background of the play: “Arthur Miller’s play, The Crucible, is a fictionalized account of the Salem Witch Trials that occurred in 1692. The play takes aim at the hysteria that swept colonial Salem, Massachusetts and caused twenty innocent victims to hang as witches.”

At the beginning of Miller’s play, Reverend Parris catches his niece, Abigail Williams, and several of her friends dancing in the woods. Fearing severe punishment, the girls pretend to be possessed by friends, family members and neighbors.

Park continues, “Abigail Williams is a cunning manipulator. She easily whips the other girls into an emotional frenzy…One man, John Proctor, knows that [she] is lying…Worried for his friends and neighbors, John threatens to reveal his infidelity with Abigail to the court if necessary to stop her…Eventually, Abigail stands by as even John is accused. Unable to watch John Proctor hang, Abigail steals Reverend Parris’ life savings and flees from Salem. ABIGAIL/1702 begins 10 years after John Proctor and 19 others were falsely accused, sentenced and hung for witchcraft.”

Emergency Water 101 –

When an emergency strikes, like what we are seeing now in Houston, a lack of knowledge about water can hurt you and your family.

Posted by Glenn Meder – Inventor of the Survival Still

Today I’m proud to make a big announcement!
As you may know, I am the designer of the Survival Still emergency water distiller. I’m very proud of this product because I know it can help people. Over my years selling the Survival Still however, I’ve come to realize that the EDUCATION I provide on the topic of “water in an emergency” is just as important as my product itself.
People simply don’t know much about water. This fact doesn’t hurt us in daily life because we can just turn on the tap anytime and drink safe water. But when an emergency strikes, like what we are seeing now in Houston, a lack of knowledge about water can hurt you and your family.
Yes, there are a lot of articles online that tell you “how to treat water in an emergency,” but MANY of these articles provide bad information. The Red Cross and government sites do a decent job, but they basically only tell you what to do instead of providing real education.

I believe that this is a very important topic that everyone should know. So I’ve been working very hard over many months to come out with a comprehensive site that provides this education. I am proud to announce the launch of my new site EmergencyWater101.com.
EmergencyWater101.com is a new website designed to teach you how to provide your family with safe drinking water in an emergency! While some of the advice you find online about this subject is sketchy, and some of it is downright dangerous, ourgoal is to provide solid, scientifically sound education that you can count on.
So let me give you a tour of the new site…

  •  FIRST, on the home page you will see our detailed articles.
  •  SECOND, click here and you will see our “Basic Training” videos, which are free and excellent!
  • THIRD, we have a new course about “Storing Water for an Emergency”. This is the only “paid” course on our site right now. It’s normally $49.99, but for this launch we will be selling the course for $19.99.
  •  FOURTH, I have worked very hard to write a brand new ebook that explains everything you need to know about water in an emergency. To get this ebook for free, send an email to freebook@emergencywater101.com and one will automatically be sent to you.

On a final note, I ask you to please tell everyone you know about my new site. There are many people who NEED this information right now.
Thank you!
Glenn Meder
P.S. Some of you will remember that we launched EmergencyWater101.com a few years ago as a membership site, but we’ve completely changed it, and made most everything on it free.
