OCTOBER 21-30, 2022 – Terry Pratchett’s WYRD SISTERS
Adapted by Stephen Briggs
Directed by Nick McDonald

Deep in the Ramtop Mountains, on the edge of the hub of the Discworld, lies the tiny rural kingdom of Lancre, a nation whose borders stretch farther vertically than they do laterally. The dastardly Duke Felmet has usurped the throne at his wife’s behest but finds the backwoods country folk less responsive to tried-and-true blueblood skullduggery and heraldry than salt-of-the-earth drudgery and superstition. 

Terry Pratchett takes Shakespeare’s Macbeth and then turns it up ’till the knob comes off. It’s all there – a wicked duke and duchess, the ghost of the murdered king, dim soldiers, strolling players, a land in peril. And who stands between the Kingdom and destruction? Three witches: Granny Weatherwax (intolerant, self-opinionated, powerful), Nanny Ogg (down-to-earth, vulgar) and Magrat Garlick (naïve, fond of occult jewelry and bunnies). 

Auditions coming September 4 & 5 

Music, Lyrics, and Book by Ron Lytle
Directed by TBA
Musical Direction by Rebecca Wright

“The Man Who Saved Christmas” is loosely based on the true story of A.C. Gilbert, the inventor of The Erector Set.) Set in 1917, as America is embroiled in the first World War, Gilbert battles with the U.S. government as it attempts to ban toy sales during the holiday season.  

Added to the mix: A secretary who keeps her heart on ice and a visiting reporter determined to thaw it out, the nefarious Iago of the toy factory Mister Dixon, Gilbert’s loving wife Mary, and the Gilberts’ precocious niece Ellen, who untangles the myriad complications in which the young lovers–and the Toy Tycoon–find themselves.  

Boasting 16 new songs that instantly feel like old friends, this is the holiday show that has left reviewers scrambling for superlatives.  “The Man Who Saved Christmas” is the new show that regional and community theatres have been wishing for! 

Auditions coming October 23 & 24 

MARCH 17-26, 2023 – THE GOOD DELI
Written by Kevin Cirone
Directed by Jennie Olson Six

Julia, a Boston comedian, is summoned frantically back home by her stepmom expecting to find her estranged father on his deathbed. Instead, she finds him seemingly the same wise-ass curmudgeon he always was, if a tad obsessed with the Italian deli the family visited when Julia was a child. When her father’s health takes a turn, Julia and her brother Max attempt to find the place and give their father the sandwich of his dreams. Leaning on an unexpected kinship with an ex-priest and fighting her sense of flight, Julia takes a road trip with the family, hoping to reconnect with her father while trying to realize the memory of a mysterious deli that may not even exist. 

Auditions coming January 29 & 30

BCT Youth Spotlight Presents “Everlasting Chocolate Therapy”

Blaine Community Theater is pleased to announce the Youth Spotlight has picked their show for 2022, Everlasting Chocolate Therapy, written by Steven Hayet!

Fifteen years after touring the famous chocolate factory, the former gum-chewer Bo returns to confront the man who made her blue only to discover that Chuck, a fellow golden ticket finder, is now in charge of operations. Since being hand-picked as an eleven-year-old, Chuck has struggled to follow in his predecessor’s footsteps, and the frustrated orange workers of the factory want a change, reuniting Chuck and Bo with the three other contestants to determine who should be the next Chocolate Man.

Everlasting Chocolate Therapy explores the bittersweet reality of the five not-so-lucky golden ticket finders and their attempts to overcome the consequences of childhood decisions.

BCT Youth Spotlight will present Everlasting Chocolate Therapy on August 5 & 6 at 7 PM, and August 7 at 2 PM, in Blaine High School’s Orange & Black Box Theater, located at 1055 H Street. Tickets are $5 at the door or on our webstore.

Feel free to contact us with any questions about the show or BCT Youth Program at blaincommunitytheater@gmail.com or calling us at 360-301-8013.

2022-2023 Season Announcement Coming Soon!

Blaine Community Theater is very pleased to announce for the first time ever a full scheduled season! But what will be on the docket? We’ll be announcing that soon, but for the least patient among you, you can visit our booth at Blaine’s Old-fashioned 4th of July Celebration and be one of the first to find out! Hope to see you there! 

Romeo & Juliet Water Balloon Show Coming July 4th!

Blaine’s Old-Fashion 4th of July Celebration is back for 2022! And with that grand tradition returning, it’s time for us to bring back a tradition of our own: the 4th of July water balloon show! Come visit Blaine Community Theater’s booth at the 4th of July street fair; we’ll be there to meet and greet the public, take part in the parade downtown, and announce our upcoming season! If that’s not enough, after the parade we’ll be performing the wet and wild Romeo and Juliet Water Balloon Show, adapted by Mikael R. Kenoyer from the play by William Shakespeare. Come enjoy one of multiple free performances, and if you want to join in with the mayhem, you can purchase water balloons to toss at the actors! Hope to see you there! 

“The Shop Around the Corner” Rescheduled!

New performance date of May 29th, shows at 1 PM and 4 PM.

Unfortunately, we have to reschedule the performances of “The Shop Around the Corner” reader’s theater performance. We really wanted to have a show for folks to take their families to on Mother’s Day, but unfortunately there was some slight Covid exposure to the production, and rather than take a chance the cast, crew, and board of directors has decided the safest thing to do is delay the show until everyone has a clean bill of health.

On the plus side, this means that we’ll have more time to prepare for the show and should be able to give you an even better theater experience than we had planned, so please be sure to check out the show on it’s new date of May 29th!
