BAT's 41st Season - don't miss a show!!! Whoaaa!!!! Eviction!!! Coronavirus!!!

BAT had to shift gears and take a new direction in 2020.  We were evicted from our home of 40 years, which was traumatic.  Then the World was hit by a viral pandemic.  We rolled with the one-two punch and resurrected ourselves with...

Three Shelter-in-place Seasons:

Shelter In Place Season I - 2020

BAT’s 2020 Shelter-in-place Season 1 consists of five plays performed over nine weeks. These five plays are the Artistic Bat Alt logo final color COVID fullDirector’s choice, with only limited oversight. That means they will be different than what you can find anywhere else on social media or streaming. You may like them all. You may like only a few, but either way, I am sure you will be entertained.

Two of the plays have been on BAT’s stage, and three have not. Even if you saw the play on stage, a performance reading is a very different experience. In a pre-pandemic world, BAT would have a show on stage. That is blocked, but BAT has to make theater. It is in our blood.

For you, it is a chance to see almost-live theater. (The performances will not be recorded. You must see them live, in real-time, or not at all.) It is also a chance to experience something unique in these twisted times. And because they are presented through Zoom, putting on pants is optional. 

Here is the schedule for BAT’s 2020 Shelter-in-place Season (all times are Pacific Daylight Time).

Each performance will be live on Zoom. To be part of the performance, you must donate to BAT. (These are very hard times for a small business that sells tickets. BAT’s very existence is in jeopardy.) The donation can be as small or as large as you are able to make. Following the donation, you will be sent an email with the Zoom link and password that will get you into the “show.” 

BAT has missed you all VERY much. Hopefully, we all will be together again soon.

Stay safe, and wash your hands!
