Lake City Playhouse and Interplayers change names

Earlier this year, Interplayers Professional Theatre approached Lake City Playhouse in an effort to avoid closure and bankruptcy. LCP acquired, via merger, Interplayers' assets and liabilities and is the surviving entity of the merger. The new brand name, The Modern Theater, is effective as of today. Each theater will be named The Modern Theater and designated by its location: The Modern Theater Spokane and The Modern Theater Coeur d'Alene. The non-profit company consists of an eight member Board of Directors, six full-time staff members, and five consistent part-time staff members. Nearly 150 artistic contractors-employees and over 200 volunteers contribute annually to the institution's success. Furthermore, the ever-growing subscriber base of over 1300 patrons is the largest it has been since the 1980's.

Established in 1961, The Modern Theater is a 501(c)(3) non-profit theater company in the Inland Northwest. Their purpose is to present theater that reflects exceptional standards in production, education, and entertainment. While supplying professional performers a quality environment to explore their craft, they aim to involve the community and provide training/education for children, teens, and adults.

Modern Theater promises to produce at least fourteen main-stage productions per season as well as other special events related to the theatrical arts. They will maintain two venues: One 160-seat auditorium with proscenium stage in Coeur d'Alene and one 250-seat auditorium with extended thrust stage in Spokane. They plan to support local visual artists by providing gallery space in the Gelhorn Gallery located in the Spokane venue.

Modern Theater will also produce year-round academic opportunities in voice, dance, and acting to include a summer intensive program taught by professional educators and artists. And will collaborate with other performing arts organizations in the region.
