Hello, Dolly and Ring of Fire coming to Coeur d'Alene | Arts & Culture
The summer line up for Coeur d’Alene Summer Theatre is out for all to see. If you’re a fan of musical theatre, you’ll love the season because it’s a mix of classics and even newer productions.
Ellen Travolta will be playing the part of Dolly Levi in Hello, Dolly! Travolta’s real life husband will be featured in the production as well as Horace Vandergelder who is the nemesis/love interest for Dolly. Could be cute. That opens in June.
The above video is from the 1969 film of Hello, Dolly! We couldn’t resist the song “Put On Your Sunday Clothes”.
For July, it’s a little hotter so of course Ring of Fire fits in nicely there. It’s similar to the movie that came out about Johnny Cash, but it’s in musical form.
They’re calling it a jukebox style musical, which was an unknown term to us but we looked it up. Apparently it’s when the performance repertoire is made up of previously released songs. That’s what you’ll expect from that show.
Next on the list, they’re doing Spamalot and there was much rejoicing. Yay.
Also on the season performance list, Ragtime. For information about their shows and when it’s all happening, check out their website. Tickets are now on sale.
