Coeur d’Alene’s Art Commission is awarding the 18th annual Mayor’s Awards in the Arts to Lake City Playhouse and arts patrons Ken and Victoria Roberge.
Lake City Playhouse will receive the Excellence in the Arts Award, given to the artists who made significant contributions to the awareness of arts in the community, according to a news release from the city. The Roberges will receive the Support of the Arts Award, recognizing their commitment, support and involvement to the arts.
The playhouse, located at 13th Street and Garden Avenue in Coeur d’Alene, has been staging plays since 1961. The regular season features eight plays – a mixture of classics and newer fare, dramas and comedies. This season kicked off recently with “Damn Yankees,” which continues through Saturday. The remaining plays this season are “Lend Me a Tenor,” “Christmas Belles,” “Little Women,” “Wit,” “The Great American Trailer Park Musical,” “Arsenic and Old Lace” and “Guys and Dolls.”
