Featuring an eclectic variety of new and familiar artists, each show in this series will light up the night.
  • Out of the Box Theatrical SeriesOut of the Box Theatrical Series is a new MBT series showcasing three intimate theatrical performances - small in scale, but large in excellence! These nationally touring shows are coming to MBT from New York, Los Angeles, and Seattle. Each production has received rave reviews and we're thrilled to bring them to Bellingham. The varied line-up will contain comedy, drama, historical insights, and thoughtful and engaging content that will inspire and move you. Each show will also include an opportunity for discussion after each performance. Experience the delight of our small stage theatre, get up close, grab a drink and enjoy an excellent night of entertainment in the comfort of the Harold and Irene Walton Theatre.
  • MBT’s Wade Bennett King Education Series sparks imagination, creates cultural connections, and fosters a lifelong love of the performing arts. We strive to enrich the lives of close to 20,000 youth from five counties every season.
  • MBT’s professional space is used by performers from student to seasoned and hosts communities of attendees who are ski enthusiasts, civic leaders, proud grandparents, and more. We’re excited to have the Bellingham Symphony Orchestra as our Resident Orchestra and to share our stage with so many local and regional event presenters.
  • MBT displays our community’s dedication to preserving history. Private donors and public funds both support the work of maintaining this landmark. The timeless purpose of public gatherings keeps this inspiring space relevant for all to enjoy.

Ticket sales only generate about half of the funds necessary to keep Mount Baker Theatre—a 501(c)(3) nonprofit—thriving in your community. You can help make the difference and support the arts in a variety of ways! Click on a link or contact us for more information.
