Melissa Gilbert will miss Spokane run of "Little House on the Prairie"

SPOKANE, Wash. - WestCoast Entertainment announced today that due to injury, Melissa Gilbert will be unable to perform in the upcoming Spokane engagement of "Little House on the Prairie, the Musical" April 8 – 11 at the INB Performing Arts Center.

According to WestCoast Entertainment, Melissa Gilbert will be taking a brief leave from her role as "Ma" in the national tour of Little House on the Prairie, the Musical, to undergo a minor surgical procedure for a back injury that she sustained early in the tour. She will be undergoing a bi-lateral Rhizotomy at DISC in Los Angeles and her recovery is expected to be complete. Melissa will miss the performances in Spokane, Washington but is expected to be back in the show in Sacramento, California.

"I am so blessed that modern technology will allow me to deal with this injury and get right back to the show and to the devoted fans. I will miss my Prairie family (P-Dawgs rule!!) but am looking forward to returning, feeling better and stronger than ever," Melissa said.

Jack Lucas, President, WestCoast Entertainment said, "We wish Melissa well in her surgery and recovery. While it is unfortunate she is unable to perform in Spokane, we look forward to the national tour and know our audiences will enjoy every minute of the performance. It is a tribute to the quality of the Little House tour that Meredith Inglesby will play the role of „Ma‟ in Melissa‟s absence. Her strong performance will be thoroughly enjoyed by all."
