Magic, love spells, and an enchanted wood provide the materials for one of Shakespeare’s most delightful comedies. When four young lovers, fleeing the Athenian law and their own mismatched rivalries, take to the forest of Athens, their lives become entangled with a feud between the King and Queen of the Fairies. Some Athenian tradesmen, rehearsing a play for the forthcoming wedding of Duke Theseus and his bride, Hippolyta, unintentionally add to the hilarity.

The romantic antics of humans and fairies play out on one magical midsummer night. With music by Felix Mendelssohn, Northwest Ballet Theater brings you a ballet that is witty, colorful, and hugely entertaining. Don't miss this mischievous dance adaptation of Shakespeare's comic masterpiece. Formed in 1999 by Artistic Director
John Bishop, Northwest Ballet Theater has established itself as one of Washington's leading ballet troupes by building a regional reputation for delivering performances of outstanding quality and depth.

Bram Stoker's compelling story of Count Dracula has drawn curious audiences for over a century. Although Stoker did not invent the vampire, he defined its modern form and his 1876 gothic horror novel has spawned numerous theatrical, film and television interpretations. Created as a two-act ballet, award-winning choreographer John Bishop brings to life the Irish author's novel with riveting dramatic performances combined with ballet elegance and grace. Bishop's Dracula is a visually lavish production with gothic sets and “steampunk”-style costuming.
Formed in 1999 by Artistic Director John Bishop, Northwest Ballet Theater has established itself as one of Washington's leading ballet troupes by building a regional reputation for delivering performances of outstanding quality and depth.

Evermore A Science Fiction Rock Musical
May 9-11 2013 8 PM Whatcom Community College Bellingham

Tickets on sale BrownPaperTickets.com
THE STORY: More than a thousand years in the future, small bands of people live and trade in the ruins of a lost and nearly forgotten civilization while a semi-mythical city from that ancient time orbits above. Two of these clans, Little Belaire and Dr. Boot’s List, survive partly by bartering very special products that only they can supply.
Rush That Speaks, a young man of Little Belaire, falls in love with a girl of Dr. Boot’s List, but the call of clan identity is stronger than love for Once A Day and she leaves Little Belaire to return to her own people. After searching for and finding her again, Rush is initiated into the strange ritual which binds Dr. Boot’s List together, but he learns that even this is not enough to keep her love. Overcome with sadness, Rush returns to his home, but on the way he meets a messenger from The City In The Sky who offers him a compelling gift – the chance to live forever with them in their city circling high above the world.The story of Rush That Speaks and his strange destiny is told in dialog, song, and dance with a large cast of characters and the backing of a full rock ensemble. Evermore is loosely based on the novel Engine Summer by John Crowley.

Mark Twain in Fairhaven
August 9 - August 26, 2012
Directed by Christopher Key & Nevada Huaute

 
When local playwright and historian Joseph Lenz wrote his “musical tall tale” Mark Twain in Fairhaven, he probably never guessed it would be 10 years before it would actually be performed in its namesake locality. For three weekends in August the Firehouse Performing Arts Center will host the play, which is loosely based 
on Twain's visit to Fairhaven in 1895. Mark Twain in Fairhaven will perform Thursdays – Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. on August 23rd ~ 26th. 
Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for students and seniors (62 and older) and will be available at Village Books and online at Brown Paper Tickets.



Bellingham Theater Guild
Annie Get Your Gun
June 15 - July 1, 2012
Directed by Judith Owens-Lancaster


Annie Oakley is the best shot around, and she manages to support her little brother and sisters by selling the game she hunts. When she's discovered by Col. Buffalo Bill, he persuades this novel sharpshooter to join his Wild West Show. It only takes one glance for her to fall head over heels for dashing shooting ace Frank Butler, who headlines the show. She soon eclipses Butler as the main attraction which, while good for business, is bad for romance. Butler hightails it off to join a rival show, his bruised male ego leading the way, but is ultimately pitted against Annie in a final shoot-out. The rousing, sure-fire finale hits the mark every time in a testament to the power of female ingenuity.
