From our friends at Burien Actors Theatre:


Burien Actors Theatre’s 36th season has come to a close.

BAT has already begun work on its 37th, the 2016-17, season. But before that adventure gets fully underway, BAT wants to thank its donors, volunteers, sponsors, and patrons, without whom BAT could not survive, much less flourish.

This has been an amazing season. BAT opened with The Addams Family the Musical. It was a smash hit. Full houses left singing and looking for Uncle Fester on the moon.

Next came A Christmas Twist, a comedy mashup of your Holiday favorites, with a little added adventure and characters. A crowd pleaser, to be sure.

Then a Victorian love story, In the Next Room, or the vibrator play. History, love, comedy, and vibrators. Who could ask for more? Although the vibrator was just a prop on which to hang the love story, BAT did hear from a few who chose not to come and see what the show was really about. Those who made it to the show heaped praise on BAT and made sizable donations during the run of the show!

Finally, the award-winning psychological thriller, The Letters. This cat and mouse game, with just two actors on stage the whole time, kept everyone on the edges of their seats until the very end. The script, actors and production values were amazing.

Now it is Summer. BAT has a showcase of new works written by its very own playwriting group, the Seattle Playwright Studio, and some sketch horror comedy from Turbo Turkey on tap. A few great weekends of theater, and some upgrades to BAT’s space, and then on to the Fall and yet another grand season of better live theater!

But to be frank, none of this would be possible without BAT’s marvelous donors, volunteers, sponsors, and patrons. Thank you, thank you, thank you all for being part of the BAT family!!! See you at a show!

– Eric Dickman

PS: There is still time to donate this season! https://co.clickandpledge.com/sp/d1/default.aspx?wid=97218

    I support Burien Actors Theater. Eric and Maggie have consistently raised the quality of live theater available in Burien with their their tireless efforts. They have gathered extraordinary actors, directors, playwrights, lighting, set and stage designers, and technical staff to put on thought provoking, intelligent, suspenseful, fun, and sexy performances.

    They thank us for our support, but we thank them for the gift they give our community.

    Our thanks also go out to The City of Burien who stand behind and support this community jewel.

    I second Elbowman’s comments. Our local theater punches way above it’s weight. It’s productions are really professional – from set design to acting skill. I go to all and enjoy every one. We are lucky to have them as part of our own community. And plenty of free parking!
