Doctor Makes A Playhouse Call
Kevin Hagen, known as Doc Baker on the TV show “Little House on the Prairie,” will present a one-man show Aug. 24-27 at the Lake City Playhouse, 14th and Garden, in Coeur d’Alene.
Hagen will reprise his role as Doc Baker as he offers stories and observations about life as a prairie doctor in the 1870s.
Here’s an example of his comments: “Folks expected miracles from us prairie doctors. The kind they didn’t feel entitled to from God.”
The show concludes with Doc’s challenge to his modern-day audience: To embrace the simple values that sustained the prairie settlers.
The show runs at 7 each night, except the Aug. 27 show which will be at 2 p.m.
All seats are $12. For ticket information, call the Playhouse at (208) 667-1323.
