The seats were empty, the lights turned down, the curtain closed. There was no sound but that of silence.
After what has been an uncertain two years, as events were postponed or canceled all together, The Pearl Theater has some exciting news to share! “Starting in March, we’ll be back to mostly regular programming, similar to pre-COVID,” shares Jessica Tingley.
Starting on March 3, Open Mic returns Thursdays with new host Tea Scarlet. Held the first Thursday each month, this is an evening when people can come together to share their talents with those in attendance. Whether you like to sing, write poetry, play music … this is a safe, supportive, positive environment to do so. Doors open at 6pm.
Movie Night returns the third Monday of the month, where the community is invited to a free movie night at The Pearl! Take a seat and enjoy the show starting at 6pm, when doors and café open for beer, wine, soft drinks and snack purchases. Call The Pearl for movie titles.
Those who enjoy a good book and sharing it with others, don’t miss Book Talk, held the third Thursday at 6pm. A book club for book lovers, there’s no assigned book to read and discuss, as participants will discuss and share what they’re currently reading! Free to attend, there will be light refreshments.
Beginning at 7pm the last Friday of the month, and back by popular demand, is a community favorite—Performers Circle. Free to attend and participate, this is the place to unplug and enjoy an evening of performance by those talented musicians and artists in the community. Though the event is free to participate, donations are gratefully accepted. Doors open at 6:30pm.
One of the most recent additions to The Pearl’s lineup is Tarot & Tea. Held the last Sunday of the month at 2pm, this is an afternoon exploring the mystery of the cards and learning how to trust your intuition; a fun way to learn about Tarot cards and perfect for beginners or for the curious. You are welcome to bring your own cards to learn how to use them, or simply join others as they practice readings and discuss all things Tarot. Tea and fresh scones will be served.
Every Friday you can find the Talent Team and Community Choir rehearsing at the theater.
Fun for the entire family, and a wonderful, wholesome way to spend a Saturday evening in Bonners Ferry, Community Dance Night takes place every other Saturday. The fun kicks off at 6pm with dance lessons, followed by the dance itself 7 to 9pm.
“We started this as a once-a-month event, but the turnout has been really great, so we are going to do it every other week,” smiles Jessica.
Enjoy a variety of social dance styles, with themes changing weekly. Come join the fun for just $5 per person for the dance portion; $10 for lesson and dance. Light refreshments are included, and The Pearl Café is open for additional drink and snack purchases.
Along with weekly and monthly events, special events have returned as well. First up? Don’t miss your chance to see Bridges Home in Concert. Scheduled for Saturday, March 19, Bridges Home returns to the Pearl stage. Doors open at 6pm, with the show beginning at 7pm. Tickets are now available online at ThePearlTheater.org.
