We Need your Help!

We are in need of a keyboard accompanist for our upcoming holiday show, A Christmas Story, the Musical. This is a rollicking, fun, music-packed show based on the hit movie, complete with dancing leg lamps and the famous quote, “You’ll shoot your eye out, kid!!”
Rehearsals will begin October 13, and an accompanist will be required at 3-4 rehearsals per week. Rehearsal…s are weeknights from 6:30 to 9:30 pm and Saturdays from 10 am – 2:30 pm.
Evening performances are Nov. 27, 28, 29 and Dec. 4, 5, 11 & 12. Matinees are Nov. 29, 30 and Dec. 6, 7, 13 and 14.
As many people are busy with other holiday events this time of year, we are open to using 2 people to share the rehearsal/performance schedule, so if you are interested but have some conflicts, we can work around that!
The Lynden Performing Arts Guild is an all-volunteer organization. Everyone, from our directors to our actors, crew and musicians donate their time and talents simply for the fun and joy of creating a quality theatre event. Please consider joining us!
For those of you not familiar with Lynden and think it is somewhere near Siberia, did you know it’s actually only about 14 miles from Bellingham? It is easily accessible in 15-20 minutes on the Guide Meridian or Hannegan Road.
Interested? Please email Susan at
