With a script based on true events from April 1998, Coeur d’Alene, the latest original full-length play by Show Low dramatist Lisa Jayne, makes its world premiere on Friday, Sept. 13, at Northland Pioneer College’s Performing Arts Center (PAC) in Snowflake/Taylor. Curtain time will be 7 p.m. for this co-production of NPC and the White Mountain Regional Theater.
Additional performances will be at 7 p.m. on Sept. 14, 20, and 21 at NPC’s Performing Arts Center, and at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 27 and 28 at the Arts Alliance of the White Mountains Arts Center, 251 N. Penrod Road in Show Low. Tickets, available through the PAC Box Office by calling 1-800-266-7845, ext. 6250, or online at, are $6 in advance or $8 on the day of the show.

Coeur d’Alene explores the political firestorm around newly elected Mayor Steve Judy when a White Supremacist group applied for a parade permit to march in the city streets of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, on Adolph Hilter’s birthday. Coeur d’Alene raises questions regarding a community’s social and moral responsibilities, free speech rights, and confronting religious and racial bigotry. The play contains mature themes and language that may be unsuitable for children.
Judy will be at the Sept. 13 and 14 performances, and will participate in talk back discussions following the productions.
