Travolta Urges CSTheatre Donations

The fate of Coeur d'Alene Summer Theatre rests in the performing arts organization's ability to raise $150,000. And it has to be done quickly. "We need support now," said actress Ellen Travolta, of Coeur d'Alene. Travolta's acting resume includes roles on several hit television sitcoms. She has been a staple on the Coeur d'Alene Summer Theatre stage since 1990, and formerly served on the nonprofit's board. Earlier this week, season ticket subscribers and the public learned that financial woes may force the cancellation of the 46-year-old theater group's 2014 season. The situation is more dire and urgent than many people realize, Travolta told The Press on Friday. Lackluster ticket sales, in recent years and during this summer's four shows, leave the organization in need of $150,000 to break even/Maureen Dolan, Coeur d'Alene. More here.

Question: Do you plan to contribute to fund to save Coeur d'Alene Summer Theatre?
