This is the final season of Coeur d'Alene Summer Theatre "unless the community tells us otherwise," Executive Director Michelle Mendez said today. Ticket sales are at a 10-year low, and that's the primary income to produce the shows, Mendez and Artistic Director Roger Welch said in a letter to patrons. "The situation is dire and we are appealing to you, our loyal fans, for help," they wrote. To keep the program going, they asked for donations or pledges to purchase season tickets for summer 2014. The newest musical, "9 to 5," opens Thursday. Coeur d'Alene Summer Theatre also staged "Big River: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn," "Mary Poppins" and "Romance Romance" this summer.
