“Fat Man On A Bicycle” Asks You To Help Burien Little Theatre
Our friends at Burien Little Theatre sent along a note explaining why you may occasionally see a “Fat Man on a Bicycle” riding around B-Town this summer.
Here’s the note:
“Fat Man on a Bicycle” asks you to help Burien Little Theatre.
I am spending my summer doing performance art. I call it “Fat Man on a Bicycle.” (See Photos. Photo credit – Maggie Larrick.) I was hoping for a grant. No luck. Instead I am doing it to raise funds for Burien Little Theatre. Please, if you see me around Burien wave! And send a donation to Burien Little Theatre to help them get ready for their 30th season, in honor of “Fat Man on a Bicycle!”
Besides “Fat Man on a Bicycle,” what else is going on at Burien Little Theatre this summer as it prepares for its 30th season? (That’s right, 30 continuous seasons all at what is now the Burien Community Center Annex.)
First, Burien Little Theatre was awarded an advertising grant from KUOW for BLT’s winter show – “A Clean House.” Listen for BLT ads in February of 2011.
Burien Little Theatre was also awarded a grant from 4Culture to help upgrade BLT’s sound system. BLT has already updated the software for its sound system. Look forward to new hardware soon.
Thanks to the Burien and Normandy Park Fire Department BLT received a grant of a public defibrillator to be put in its performance space. It is the one grant BLT hopes never gets used. But what a great feeling to know its there, if ever needed.
The first three shows of Burien Little Theatre’s 30th season are cast and rehearsals for the first two shows start soon.
The season will open on September 24th with “Reefer Madness the Musical” – A musical version of the 1936 movie warning about the dangers of marijuana. You can see the original movie on Burien Little Theatre’s website, burienlittletheatre.org.
Along with Reefer, in October BLT will try something totally new, a late night horror show starting at 11 PM. “Zombie” is about a psychopathic child killer – unless you are already dead, it will scare you to death! No one under 16 allowed in.
At the Wild Strawberry Festival, Burien Little Theatre’s booth won the most coveted “People’s Choice Award” for best use of a strawberry theme. BLT will be back to defend its title next year.
Burien Little Theatre was in the Burien 4th of July parade. BLT was greeted by applause and smiles from its supporters. Everyone had a grand time.
Finally Burien Little Theatre’s new website is live – that’s burienlittletheatre.org.
Don’t miss out: Do what I am doing and help Burien Little Theatre this summer. Donate what you can. Get your tickets early. You can buy tickets and donate online at burienlittletheatre.org or send a check to P.O. Box 48121, Burien, WA 98148.
