Coeur d’Alene Summer Theatre teases 2018-19 season with Broadway on a Boat

Coeur d’Alene Summer Theatre is giving audiences a sneak peek at its 2018-19 season during Broadway on a Boat, Wednesday on Lake Coeur d’Alene.

There will be a no-host bar and light refreshments and, of course, lots of singing as actors perform songs from “Forever Plaid,” “Guys and Dolls” and “Legally Blonde.”

In “Forever Plaid,” directed by Tyler Krieg, four singers, known as the Plaids, who are killed in a car crash on the way to their first big concert, return from the afterlife for another chance to put on a great performance.

“Forever Plaid” stars Jeff Rowden as Jinx, Jadd Davis as Francis, Casey Raiha as Sparky and Henry McNulty as Smudge.

In “Guys and Dolls,” directed by Jadd Davis, gambler Nathan Detroit (Casey Raiha) must find $1,000 to pay the owner of the garage where he holds his craps games so he bets Sky Masterson (Brandon Michael) that Sky can’t get the conservative Sarah Brown (Megan Renae Parker) to go out with him.

In the meantime, Detroit also has to find a way to deal with his longtime fiancée Adelaide (Sarah Dahmen), who wants to go to the courthouse and make things official.

And in “Legally Blonde,” Elle Woods (Kiki Burns), a perpetually peppy sorority girl, enrolls in Harvard Law School to win back her ex-boyfriend Warner Huntington III (Andrew Murray).

Despite the fact that people have little faith in her abilities, she quickly finds she has a knack for using the law to help others.

“Legally Blonde” is directed by Anasofia Gallegos and also stars John Devereaux as Emmett Forrest, Julie Galorenzo as Paulette and Ryan Childers as Professor Callahan.
