BCT October Annual Meeting 2021

It’s that time again… time for the Annual Meeting!

The Annual Meeting is held every October by Blaine Community Theater for a number of reasons. First, its a way for the board to touch base with the other members of the theatre. Secondly, its a great way for theatre members to reconnect, introduce themselves, and just generally meet with one another. Finally, its the point each year where we designate members of the Board of Directors.

All theatre members are invited to the Annual Meeting to help select the board, discuss ideas, and get to know each other. But who qualifies as a member? As defined by the theatre’s by-laws, anyone who has worked on a BCT production or attended a meeting (including this one) is considered a member. (Yes, this means that if you attend the Annual Meeting, you are automatically a member!)

The October Annual Meeting is being held from 7:00 PM through 8:30 PM on October 21, 2021, in the Blaine Boating Center Meeting Room. The Meeting Room is at the Blaine Marina, near Gate 2, in the same building as the public bathrooms, across the street from Marine Park.

As this is a public event, under current state mandate attendees will be required to wear facemasks for this indoor meeting. We will review this policy if government recommendations change before the actual event date.

Hope to see you all there!

“Our Community” – A Devised Theater Class & Project

An original theatre work created by and about you, the community!

Have you ever wondered what goes into the genesis of a new play, either as a writer, director, tech person, or actor? Do you have a love of our community, and the people and stories that lie within it? Are you looking for a new way to connect with people from all walks of life, and create something new and original and communal? If any of these sound like you, then “Our Community” might be just what you have been looking for!

“Our Community” is a devised theatre class that ends with a piece of new original theatre created and performed by the participants! Over 8 weeks, class participants will be guided through a process of interviewing members of our community and developing those interviews into a biographical theatrical work about their community. This will be a new show, uniquely structured around the voices interviewed and interviewing. After the creation process, participants will rehearse and perform this new work in January 2021! (Participants ARE allowed to choose to only engage in the creation portion or the performance portion if they so desire.)

Link to “Our Community” Class Flyer

Classes will be held both online and occasionally in socially distant outdoor venues beginning October 17th:

  • Ages 14-17 on Monday evenings 7:30 PM – 8:30 PM
  • 18 and up on Thursday evenings 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM
