Thanks to all of you, Burien Actors Theatre’s 35th Season drew to a close with the end of the Bill and Peggy Playwrights Festival on May 24. BAT is gearing up to do it all over again! Our main stage season opens in the fall with the musical “The Addams Family.”
This summer look for BAT in the 4th of July Parade, and at the Strawberry Festival, where in prior years BAT has been selected as the “best booth” by the crowds.
This summer BAT will also be presenting “Electic Man,” a superhero comedy by Turbo Turkey, dance and the Seattle Playwright Studio’s Showcase. BAT’s BALL (Burien Actors Lending Library), located at Bumbershoot Books, will also begin to be filled with books.
BAT has said it before, and we’ll say it again and again, there would be no BAT without you and all of the community support! Patrons, donors and well wishes come to BAT from throughout greater Puget Sound. It is humbling. (BAT’s patrons come from Olympia to Vancouver. BC. and every place in between. For example, BAT is becoming a “where to” place for Canadians to spend the evening after a trip to shop at SouthCenter, and local businesses are benefiting too.)
Ticket prices could never cover what it costs to put on great theater. For a non-profit theater like BAT, the difference is made up in tax deductible donations, grants and volunteer help.
BAT is blessed with those who can, and do, make financial donations.
BAT is also blessed with volunteers who do everything. They truly are BAT’s life-blood.
Theaters also need the support of their home cities. Burien has been there for BAT. A special shout out to Burien, and Burien Parks Recreation and Culture Services, BAT’s landlord.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
See you at the show.
