In celebration of Mother’s Day, Blaine Community Theater will be presenting a reader’s theatre production of the radio play of “The Shop Around the Corner”, as originally broadcast by Lux Radio Theater on June 23, 1941. A hit Jimmy Stewart movie from 1940, based on a 1937 French play, “The Shop Around the Corner” is the story of two people falling in love by writing one another through an anonymous Classifieds ad, little suspecting that their beloved is none other than their worst enemy at their workplace. The film went on to inspire the hit Broadway musical “She Loves Me” and received an internet facelift in the film “You’ve Got Mail”.
“The Shop Around the Corner” will have two performances– 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM on May 8th, 2022 The show is taking place in the Blaine Boating Center meeting room at 235 Marine Drive, Blaine, WA.
Blaine Community Theater is proud to present this show as a ‘pay-what-you-can’ production, so there are no charges for the show. Donations will be accepted, but patrons are under no obligation to pay a ticket price for this event–just to enjoy the show!
