This July, the Mount Baker Theatre is opening its doors for a free afternoon of adventure and family fun. Want your picture as a “star” on the Main Stage, to play a few rounds of live “Name That Tune” while sipping a brew in the Encore Room, or to get your face painted in the lighted mirrors of the dressing room? How about being the first to grab tickets to Five for Fighting or Bela Fleck? Read on!
At 2:00pm on Sunday, July 23rd the Mount Baker Theatre’s Embark! Open House and On-Sale Event marks the first moment twenty-nine exciting events for 2017-18 become available for public sale! It is also an opportunity for MBT to open its doors to the community and allow everyone to explore the full building, back stage and all.
Grab your crew of intrepid explorers and Embark! With the help of a map, a field guide, and our trusty volunteers you’ll undertake a quest for fun as you identify and engage with different elements throughout the building. Map out your entertainment adventures for the upcoming show season with video and audio of upcoming performances, and capture the best available seats and package savings.
On your expedition, have a picture taken amidst beautiful bubbles on the Main Stage, identify “flora and fauna” in the building for prizes, compete in ‘Name That Tune’ hosted by the MBT Board of Directors, take part in kids’ face painting in the dressing room, and hear the pipe organ.
After finishing the expedition, visitors can show they’ve completed their mission and receive a special Mount Baker Theatre-Edition Bija chocolate bar. Bija is a local Bellingham company working directly with women’s cooperatives to produce the finest chocolate in the world that supports families, communities, and cultures. These special co-branded bars hold another surprise—five recipients will win a golden ticket for a series package of two tickets to four shows!
