Countdown to Curtain

Together we can prepare MBT for a grand reopening, starring your health and safety.

When it comes to COVID-19, Mount Baker Theatre is regularly reassessing future plans based on the most reliable information available, but one thing is certain: MBT will need additional funds to reopen when the time comes, and now is the perfect time to start our Countdown to Curtain together.

Together we can prepare for a grand reopening, starring your health and safety. You can support MBT’s Countdown to Curtain with a donation today!


 


Donate online or mail in your tax-deductible donation to the MBT Box Office (Attn: Countdown to Curtain fund | 104 N. Commercial Street | Bellingham, WA 98225).
 

Why do we need a Countdown to Curtain? MBT has successfully maximized its resources and reduced staff and expenses to manage at minimal operations during the mandatory COVID-19 shutdown. However, once restrictions are lifted, the Theatre estimates an additional $225,000 in start-up expenses will be needed beyond its current capacity, including creating a comprehensive strategic plan to ensure health and safety, training staff and volunteers on new policy and procedures, acquiring new cleaning supplies and personal protective equipment (PPE), and preparing the building.

We’re already halfway to goal! MBT’s Countdown to Curtain was inspired by a group of arts advocates—special thanks to Saturna Capital, George Mills, Susan Reece, Jane Verner, Lesley Cooke, and Jim Zoeher who have already contributed $126,000 toward strategic planning and implementing new health and safety procedures. MBT is now reaching out to the community to help raise the remaining $99,000 needed. 


Every gift helps MBT get one step closer to reopening its doors safely and successfully by:

  • Generating new policies and procedures for your health and safety
  • Purchasing new sanitizing equipment and supplies
  • Purchasing new protective gear and equipment—such as sneeze guards and PPE—to keep volunteers, staff, patrons, and performers healthy
  • Rehiring and retraining staff and volunteers in new policies and procedures
  • Employing staff in advance of event dates, in order to
    • schedule events
    • advertise
    • sell tickets
    • secure sponsors
    • restock inventory
    • educate you on our new policies, procedures, and expectations
    • prepare the building for welcoming you into the beautiful historic Mount Baker Theatre once again!

Together we can get MBT ready for a grand reopening, starring your health and safety.

We miss seeing you at the Theatre!

Along with planning ahead for a successful reopening that prioritizes your health and safety, the small staff still working at MBT continues to enrich your world during this unplanned intermission. Though our doors are closed temporarily, you can still enjoy online arts experiences, Peek Behind the Curtain video tours, and reports on Continuing the Legacy capital projects from MBT by signing up for weekly emails or following along on Facebook!
