“Sound of Music” Sing-a-Long lets fans play Julie Andrews

Though we can’t all have Julie Andrews’ vocal range, Laura Little Theatrical Productions and the Salvation Army Kroc Center is giving “The Sound of Music” fans the chance to pretend during its “The Sound of Music” Sing-a-Long on Sunday.

“Come From Away” gets warm welcome on Broadway

“Come From Away” is based on the real-life story of how the tiny Canadian town of Gander, Newfoundland, took in and comforted thousands of stranded air passengers on 9/11, when the grounding of air traffic after the terror attacks forced 38 jetliners to land there. The show is co-produced by Coeur d’Alene’s Laura Little.

When “Traditions of Christmas” takes to the Kroc Center stage starting today, there will be a few assorted animals and 87 local performers – including an Oscar winner. Longtime Coeur d’Alene resident Patty Duke (“The Miracle Worker”) is playing Mrs. Claus. Her husband, Mike Pearce, will be putting on the red suit to play Kris Kringle.

Stage transforms ‘Giver’ for Duke and friends

Patty Duke and her neighbor, Broadway producer Laura Little, had been looking for projects to work on together. But it didn’t prove to be an easy task for the two Coeur d’Alene women. “We kept coming up with one-woman plays that just didn’t hit me right,” Duke said. “Then one day she said, ‘Are you aware of a book named ‘The Giver’? And I’m ashamed to say I wasn’t.”
