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!
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!
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!
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.
We apologize for the short notice, but we will have to reschedule the January board meeting (which is a real shame as we had a couple potentially large items to go over). We will get the meeting rescheduled just as soon as we can!
