Thanks to everyone who auditioned! We were genuinely surprised by the number of people who auditioned for the show, and there were a lot of tough decisions to be made. Thanks for your support and we hope we can see you all at the next audition!

Auditions: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Blaine Community Theater is announcing auditions for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher, and directed by Nick McDonald. Due to scheduling restraints, we will have to be holding private auditions scheduled on an individual basis (if the option for an open audition format suddenly becomes available, we will notify the public via our Facebook page and blainecommunitytheater.com)

The show has roles for at least 4 men and 2 women, potentially late teen to late-60’s, and auditions will involve cold readings from the script, and will be scheduled between September 5th to 9th with rehearsals to begin the following week and performances to run in late October. To schedule an audition or ask any other questions, please email blainecommunitytheater@gmail.com .

Pirates of Penzance Water Balloon Show!

Pirates-of-PenzanceWhen we decided to do Pyramus & Thisbe Water Balloon Show for Blaine’s 4th of July Celebration, our goal was to entertain the crowd, do a little bit of fundraising, and let the community know that rumors of our death were exaggerated (not ‘largely exaggerated’–just barely exaggerated if we’re honest, but exaggerated all the same). The last thing we expected was that we would be asked to do another one just a month away!
But that’s just what happened. Our friends at the Blaine-Birch Bay Parks & Rec department asked us if we could do a water balloon show for Kids’ Pirate Daze, one of the events that collectively make up the Drayton Harbor Days Festival, and we said, “why not?” Show decision was left to us, and it seemed only natural that the best cheesy pirate themed show to pick would be Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance!
Mikael R. Kenoyer, who also abridged and directed the Pyramus & Thisbe Water Balloon Show, has edited down Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance into a bite-sized performance, and recruited a Murderer’s Row of local theater talent to take the stage (and the shots) including favorites such as Deborah Blakesley, David Bolden, Kennedy Rainer, Paul Henderson, Sue Dodson, and many others.
We’ll also have theater volunteers on hand to offer water balloons for sale so the audience can attempt to drown out (pun intended) our caterwauling:
Water Balloons — 25-cents or 5-for-1 dollar
Bucket of Balloons (bring us our buckets back, please!)– 5 dollars
Blaine Community Theater tote bag of Balloons — 8 dollars (and you keep the bag!)
Blaine Community Theater tote bag — 5 dollars
The Pirates of Penzance Water Balloon Show will take place during Pirate Daze in Blaine’s Marine Park. Pirate Daze runs from 10:30 AM to 2:00 PM, and we’ll be fitting in performances of Penzance throughout the day. Bring the family and join the fun!

Blaine 4th of July Celebration 2018

Our 4th of July re-launch was a success! We raised a little money for the theater, let people know we exist (“I didn’t even know Blaine had a community theater,” was the most common sentence I heard all day), and entertained a ton of people. (Sorry to the nearby booths that we stole audience from or accidentally soaked–we learned our lessons and will adjust accordingly to be more neighbor friendly next year.)

Some things to watch out for in the near future: The day before the 4th, we finally got confirmation on the dates for our first show, an as-yet-unnamed Halloween show to run October 19-21 & 26-28 in Blaine High School’s new black box theater. Secondly, a representative from Blaine Parks & Rec loved the water balloon show concept and asked us to join the Blaine Maritime Festival coming up August 5 & 6. So stay tuned for those events and others!
