LRHT holding trio of events throughout Wakefield over the next 30 days
WAKEFIELD, Neb. -- A theatre in northeast Nebraska is hosting a wide variety of events over the next month.
The Little Red Hen Theatre in Wakefield is holding two concerts and one murder mystery event over the next 30 days.
This Thursday and Friday, Elvis impersonator Joseph Hall will be performing at the theatre.
Hall came to Wakefield in 2022 which left a lasting impression on the theatre.
"He actually appeared on America's Got Talent and made it into the top 10 in the year that he was on. Just an incredible performer," said Adam Goos, the managing director for the theatre. "He comes in and does a show that takes you through the decades of Elvis. He talks about his movies, performs songs, and he's the real deal. If you love Elvis, it's just like seeing him live."
On Valentines Day, the theatre will be putting on a murder mystery dinner called "Totally Rad 80's Prom Gone Bad."
Attendees will be able to enjoy dinner and then participate in a mystery surrounding a murder at a high school prom.
"You find out that all of these characters could potentially be the murderer and have a reason to do it," Goos said. "It's up to the audience to look at the evidence we find and ask questions and interact with the characters to find out what their secrets are and why they might be the murderer."
On Sunday, Feb. 19, the theatre will be raising money for the Wakefield Public Schools family fund.
The Heavenly Hens will be performing at the theatre.
The group is a gospel women's triple trio that performs throughout northeast Nebraska.
"We love highlighting local musicians in our area. It's one of the things we think is very important here at the theatre," Goos said. "So to be able to showcase the work of the Heavenly Hens which perform throughout our region in our space was something we had to do."
The show will be open to the public, but a donation is welcome.
