Mount Baker Theatre celebrates 95 years with a sensational April anniversary concert!

Bellingham theatre marks 95th anniversary April 23 benefit concert with Kristin Chenoweth

You only turn 95 once, and for Bellingham’s Mount Baker Theatre, that milestone is one to celebrate!

On April 23, the historic theatre hosts For the Girls, an exclusive, one-night-only engagement starring legendary Emmy and Tony Award-winning singer and actress Kristin Chenoweth.

The triple-threat entertainer will perform a spectacular show titled after her latest album which pays tribute to iconic and timeless performers such as Barbra Streisand, Linda Ronstadt, Dolly Parton, and Reba McEntire.

The historic Mount Baker Theatre was built in 1927 and was one of the last great vaudeville movie palaces built in the Pacific Northwest. Designed by architect R.C. Reamer, the extravagant building features a varied mix of styles including French Baroque, Moroccan, Spanish Gothic, Babylonian, and Egyptian Revival (after the discovery of King Tut’s tomb in 1922).

Bellingham’s Mount Baker Theatre has been delighting audiences for 95 years.

As a community-owned Pacific Northwest performing arts and education center, Mount Baker Theatre works to preserve history while serving the demands of ever-changing economic, technological and societal factors.

MBT not only hosts world-class entertainment like traveling Broadway shows and legendary music performers, but it also serves the local community. Local groups and organizations have access to the restored building and professionally managed stage to make their events incredible.

The Community Spaces program enables arts-related local non-profits to use the Encore Room, often free of charge. Other groups using the spaces include the Whatcom Symphony Orchestra, area performing arts schools, film festivals, colleges, Western, and speakers from various civic and community groups.
