Public Speaking Contest

The Cass County 4-H and Extension Office is hosting a Public Speaking Contest on April 17th, 2018 beginning at 6:30 pm.  The office is located by the fairgrounds at 8400 144th Street, Suite 100, Weeping Water, NE  68463.  This contest is open to students in the community, as well as Cass County 4-Hers.  Public Speaking Contests are great for developing the life skill of communication, confidence and poise.

One of our 4-H leaders asked this question ... "What is the difference between the Cass County contest, and the 4-H Contest?" Here's a quick answer:

  • ·For the Cass County Public Speaking Contest, any student can give a speech, including non 4-Hers. It can be on any topic; even recited poems and/or prose readings are acceptable. Ribbons are given, but contestants do not advance to the district level, it’s a county only contest.  This opportunity provides a great practice and refining time for any public speaking event.
  • ·For the 4-H Public Speaking Contest, the student must be enrolled in 4-H.  All speeches must be original and include 4-H as the major component of the speech. Winners advance on to the 4-H district level.

Pre-registration formscontest guidelines, and speech writing helps are on the Nebraska Extension Cass County website .  Pre-registration forms are due April 13th.

If you have any questions about the Cass County Public Speaking Contest, please call the extension office at 402-267-2205.

Lofte Community Theatre Holds Auditions for The Miracle Worker
 
The Lofte Community Theatre, located in Manley, NE, just 25 minutes south of Omaha, will hold auditions for William Gibson’s The Miracle Worker April 16 and 17, at 7 pm.

Lofte Community Theatre Executive Artistic Director, says “This piece of theatre is ripe with juicy characters that will really allow local actors to stretch their abilities and bring to life a classic tale.” Set in 1887 in Tuscumbia, Alabama, The Miracle Worker chronicles the true story of Annie Sullivan and her student, Helen Keller.

The play, based on Helen Keller’s autobiography, The Story of My Life first opened on Broadway in 1959 and starred Anne Bancroft as Annie Sullivan and Patty Duke as Helen Keller. The duo went on to reprise their roles for the 1962 film adaptation where they went on to win Academy Awards for Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress, respectively.

Struck by illness in infancy, young Helen Keller is left blind, deaf and mute. With no discipline, by the age of six, Helen has grown into a wild, tantrum-throwing child in control of the household. The Kellers hire Annie Sullivan to serve as their daughter’s teacher. After several fierce battles with Helen, Annie convinces the Kellers she needs two weeks alone with Helen in to achieve any progress in the girl's education. During that time, Annie teaches Helen discipline through persistence and consistency and language through hand signals, a double breakthrough that changes Helen's life forever.

Colbert will be casting roles for seven males, and seven females. Additionally, there are roles for several children, who will be cast as blind students. To see all roles available, visit the ‘Get Involved’ page at www.Lofte.org. Those interested in auditioning should come prepared to read from the script. Children auditioning for the role of Helen Keller should come to the audition prepared to move on stage. Please dress appropriately.

For questions regarding auditions contact the Lofte Community Theatre at 402-234-2553, email director Kevin Colbert at loftedirector@lofte.com, or visit The Lofte Community Theatre’s website at www.Lofte.org and click on “Get Involved”.
