On May 1, 2019, Burien Actors Theatre (BAT) was pleased to award the first of its three
$1,000.00 scholarships to a high school student interested in theater or the performing arts. Here Maggie Larrick (BAT’s Managing Director – left) poses with Grace Clark (right) the recipient of the BAT arts scholarship at Kennedy Catholic High School.
Two more high school students interested in theater or the performing arts from the Highline School District will be awarded $1,000.00 each in June.
2019 is the second year BAT has offered scholarships to high school students interested in the arts in the greater Burien area.
This year’s three scholarships were graciously funded by King County Council through Council Member Dave Upthegrove. In the picture below, Maggie Larrick (left), BATs managing director, and Eric Dickman (center), BAT’s artistic director, happily receive a $3,000.00 check from King County Council Member Dave Upthegrove (right).
Dave Upthegrove is an ardent supporter of the arts and Burien students, and he is a friend to BAT. Here, Council Member Upthegrove is providing funding for the second year of BAT’s high school scholarships for students interested in the arts.
The photo with King County Council Member Dave Upthegrove was taken on BAT’s set for the recently closed Visiting Cezanne. Please join BAT at its bi-annual BAT Playwrights Festival on stage now through May 19, 2019. BAT is producing four never-before-produced works: two one-acts and two-full length plays over four weeks.
