All of us at Lake City Playhouse are so blown away by the love and support shown by this community tonight! We are so thankful. Thank you for sharing this beautiful night with us.
After the Modern Theater Spokane announced its closure at the end of last year, the future of the theater’s Coeur d’Alene location appeared to be up in the air. Now it’s official: The Modern Coeur d’Alene has rechristened itself Lake City Playhouse, the name that had adorned the Garden Avenue location for years before it took on the Modern moniker in 2014.

Troy and some of our amazing Return to Community performers were in the Spokane Public Radio studio this morning speaking with our friend, Verne, about the upcoming benefit, our plans for the future of Lake City Playhouse and the transition from the Modern. Hear the whole recording, featuring performances by Abbey Crawford and Ryan Schneider here : http://spokanepublicradio.org/post/studio-lake-city-playhouse
We are so excited to announce auditions for Jesus Christ SuperStar – February 27 and 28th at 6:30pm. Run dates will be March 31st – April 23rd, directed by Troy Nickerson. Actors must prepare a one minute song, not from JCSS, and come prepared to move.
We were so blown away by the community members that showed up tonight to support and speak with board members and staff of Lake City Playhouse. We know this has been an interesting and difficult transition for many, but the positivity and looking towards the future that were demonstrated tonight gave us so much hope for Lake City Playhouse and the community that we serve. We are so thankful for all of you!
