Default What yeast would you recommend?

This Christmas I received a Brewmaster's Select American Pilsner kit with the following ingredients...

4 lbs. Extra Light Dried Malt Extract
1 lb Rice Solids
1 bag special malts - crystal malt 10l
1/2 oz hallertauer, bitter hops
1/2 saaz, aromatic flower hops
White Labs WLP830 yeast

After receiving this as a gift, I realized that I do not have the means to keep the temperature low during fermentation as the yeast suggests. Is there any yeast I could substitute for the one I have so I can avoid having to use the low temps but still use the remaining ingredients? Thanks for any help.

I've read Nottingham works well as a substitute for ale temps.

Nottingham works very well for warmer temps.

If you can get into the upper 50s, Kolsch yeast is very lager-like. Otherwise, a clean ale yeast like 1056/US-05/WLP001 fermented in the low 60s will be good.

I'd agree with kolsch yeast as being lager-like at the right temps, FWIW.
