This weekend in theater

Posted on Thu, Aug 19, 2010 at 12:37 PM

Crazy for You, How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and the perennial show The Sound of Music — just drive 190 miles west of Spokane, and you can see all three shows this weekend at Leavenworth Summer Theatre. Their season continues through Aug. 29.

"Run, Freedom, Run!" "The Art of the Possible." "Warts and All." They're songs that appear in which three musicals? You'll know the answers after Sunday at 7:30 pm, which brings the season preview at Lake City Playhouse, 1320 E. Garden Ave. in Coeur d'Alene. For just $10, you can get a glimpse of what things will be like under new artistic director George Green, with performances of songs from Evita, A Taffeta Christmas, Urinetown, And the World Goes 'Round and Honk! Call (208) 667-1323.

And if you've always wanted to see a plus-size transvestite stomp on bigots with his high heels, this weekend's your last chance. CdA Summer Theatre's Hairspray has performances tonight, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm on the North Idaho College campus.
