This Friday’s performance of “Coney Island Christmas” (read our review here) will start at 8:30 p.m., and all other shows are at the regular times – Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., Sunday at 2 p.m.
“The fire at BAT’s theater space tried to play Scrooge and stamp out ‘Coney Island Christmas,’” said Eric Dickman. “Not so fast! As promised, BAT (maybe better named PHOENIX right now) has located a temporary space. THANK YOU Highline Historical Society for making this space available to BAT! THANK YOU Dukesbay Productions from Tacoma for the lighting and sound equipment loan! THANK YOU to all of BAT’s volunteers for stepping up to help. THANK YOU everyone who has voiced their support to BAT in this stressful time.”
PLEASE bring nonperishable food with you as admission to Hope in Hard Times and to help those in need.
The folks at BAT added:
“THANK YOU Highline Historical Society for making this possible! Please let the Burien City Council know that you want them to rebuild the existing theater space that was fire damaged and to support BAT in its time of need – firstname.lastname@example.org.”
