Bellingham Theatre Guild

The Bellingham Theatre Guild, one of several community theatres, is one of the oldest continuously running theaters on the west coast. It has been operating since 1929, and since 1944 has been located at the old Congregational Church on G Street. The old church was purchased from Aimee Semple McPherson, the colorful founder of the Foursquare Church.

I try to get to a show at the Theatre Guild once or twice a year. Yesterday I enjoyed their take on the farce "Taking Steps," by Alan Ayckbourn. It was quite funny-- a good, local show for the price of a movie ticket.


  1. Wow, that's quite a claim for the whole west coast. Glad you had a good time at the show yesterday and at a very good price!

  2. It's gorgeous & pink! The angle of the shot brings the best out of the tower, and it's so nice to see it well preserved.
    Good reminder to check out the local theater offerings...I used to go to Long Beach Playhouse - the upstairs, more unconventional productions.
