[January 18, 2016]  LINCOLN - It's cold, it's nasty out and a long way to spring. But getting out to this year's winter play produced and performed by Lincoln Community High School students is one way to help you beat those winter blahs. This is one of those plays sure to warm your heart with good laughs when you go to see Father Knows Best.

Father Knows Best is a family friendly play with the following description:

Adapted by Kristin Sergel from the radio play by Edward James.

Getting her first date with Ralph wasn't easy and Betty's afraid it'll be her last. After reading a newspaper story about teenage elopement, Father has decided he'd better get acquainted with the young man first. He asks the family what's so awful about spending an evening at home? Nothingóbut it seems that Bud, Kathy and even Mother have made plans to go out. Aggravated, Father puts his foot down and they all stay home. The town's social life is suddenly centered on the Anderson household. The excitement and humorous complications grow and then, in the final scene, Father discovers that while he may know best, the young people know a little, too.

Director Samantha Murphy of the LCHS English Department says the play's large cast of 17 performers and 10 crew have been working hard since November.

Student Directors are Ryan Crawley and Rebekah Harpin and the play's lead cast members are Braden Tanner, Lena Stapleton, McKenzie Landers, Ryan Crawley and Justin Woods.

Supporting cast include Lydia Spellman, Ethan Keller, Aleaya Turley, Abby Funk, Madeline Steiner, Bradley Rahn, Logan Keysear, Anthony Brummett, Shannon Rahn, Shelby Harrison, Shelbi Fisher and Lexi Taylor.
