Live in Bellingham, WA:
Continually ranked on "top ten" lists of the best places to live, Bellingham, WA sits in the sweet spot between the coast and the coast range--something locals like to call "from ski to sea." It is an easy drive to either Seattle or Vancouver BC for big city access, and the surrounding agricultural area is both fertile and festive (think raspberries and wineries). Bellingham has a great arts community, three universities, and the feel of a big city in an easy-to-navigate small town.

About Mount Baker Theatre
Mount Baker Theatre is a thriving performing arts center located between Seattle, Washington, and Vancouver, British Columbia, with a total annual operations budget of $3 million. We are both a roadhouse and a producing organization, and program for artistic value and sometimes just for fun entertainment value. We rent our facilities to many community organizations that present theatre, dance, and other performing arts each year. The Theatre is a beautifully restored and theatrically updated venue built in 1927 as part of the Fox movie and vaudeville circuit. It includes a 1500-seat Main Stage Theatre (the largest performing arts facility of its kind north of Seattle), the Harold and Irene Walton Theatre (a versatile black-box performance space), and the Encore Room (an intimate space perfect for small performances, business meetings, and private parties). Our loyal and dedicated supporters have contributed to our 15-year record of growth in both attendance and revenue. In addition to those donors, advertisers, members, and volunteers (who donate more than 11,000 service hours each year), we credit a staff that is lean, hard-working, cross-trained, fun, and enthusiastic for our success.
