“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!

“THE SHOP AROUND THE CORNER” READER’S THEATRE RADIO PLAY

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!

COVID-19 Information: In accordance with current Washington State protocol, all Covid protections are at the personal option of the individual.

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!
