The Theatre

Last night I went out for my first social event of the month: To the Coeur d'Alene High School's production of "Babes in Arms." When my co-worker asked me to go because she had an extra ticket, I jumped at the chance because back in the day of BSC theatre productions I loved to go. Even though this was a high school production it was no different. Most of the kids were terrible singers and some of the acting was really bad, but nonetheless I enjoyed myself. I even laughed a few times and the two hours of watching teenagers on stage went by really fast.

That got me thinking, Why don't I do this more often? I don't really like going to movies, knowing that I'm spending so much money when in a few months I can watch the movie at home with Netflix. I don't like going to bars because I'm by myself and feel awkward. So I should really start going to the theatre! Coeur d'Alene has it's own theatre and each high school in town puts on a show every fall and spring. The college in CDA probably has a theatre program. Plenty of entertainment to be had.

Expect to see more theatre posts in the near future!


  1. You should check out if the movie theater's in CDA receive the Metropolitan Opera Live via satellite. When I was at the Grand we did that, and although the ticket prices were around $20+ - it's a live feed from the actual Met Opera (where tickets are $200+) AND they have a lot of backstage footage with the cast . . . and again it is a LIVE feed. The operas came about once ever month an a half or so. may have info if a theater near you shows the met.

    I know it's still going to a movie theater, BUT it's not a typical movie experience. I went to a few of them (free of course) and they were spectacular! If not, checking out what the colleges offer would still be cool. I loved the BSC productions!

  2. I'm not big on Opera (I just wrote Oprah). I don't really get it and while some of the singing and costumes are beautiful, it's not really my thing. However, I have always wondered what that Met Opera thing was at the grand so thanks for letting me know! :)
