Bellingham Arts Academy for Youth Presents: Esme’s Adventures in Another World

Bellingham Arts Academy for Youth (BAAY) presents Esme’s Adventures in Another World. This original production was written, directed, and choreographed by Lisa Markowtiz. It tells the story of a girl named Esme, who keeps all of her thoughts in a duffle bag. Esme travels to another realm where she meets The Ponderer, The Star-Gazer, The Tiny Toad of Dismay, and other wonderful characters. Through their adventures, Esme learns the secrets of happiness, dreams, and, most importantly, spaghetti. Esme’s Adventures in Another World features student performers ages 9-12 and runs December 10-12 and 17-19 at the BAAY Theatre. Tickets and more information at

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
