"DR. FRANKENSTEIN" A GOTHIC TALE written by Selma Dimitrijevic

October 5 through October 28, 2018

Friday, Saturday at 8 pm, and Sunday matinees at 2 pmFrank webart

This is not your father’s Frankenstein. In this startlingly fresh, lyrical and haunting contemporary adaptation of Mary Shelley's classic novel, Dr. Frankenstein is reimagined as a woman. Victoria Frankenstein and her articulate Creature tell a thought-provoking story that follows Mary Shelley’s book more closely than other productions, but with wonderful new twists and an exploration of what happens when we don’t try to understand “the other”—and what happens when we do. This is just the second US production of Dr. Frankenstein.

"HANDLE WITH CARE" A COMEDY written by Jason Odell Williams

November 23 through December 16, 2018

Friday, Saturday at 8 pm, and Sunday matinees at 2 pmHandle web art

From the writer of BAT’s 2018 hit production Church & State, this delightfully fresh holiday show is a romantic comedy dusted with magic. Ayelet, a young Israeli woman with little command of English, reluctantly travels with her grandmother to America. Circumstances both hilarious and sad bring Ayelet together with Josh, a young man who has little command of romance. Is their attraction an accident, or destiny generations in the making? "Hilarious and heartwarming"—NY Times. A Northwest premiere.

This show contains infrequent adult language that includes “G, D and J” words. BAT’s policy is to inform audiences of content but to let parents, guardians and teachers make decisions that they feel appropriate for the youth and teens in their care.

The show runs just under 2 hours.

Cast: Anna Richardson (Ayelet); Tim Takechi (Josh); Eileen McCann (Edna); and Adam Hegg (Terrence).  Heather Bernadette is the show’s stage manager.

Creative Team: Rochelle Flynn and Maggie Larrick, directors; Albie Clementi, set; Zanna King, lighting; Cyndi Baumgardner, props and set dressing; Heather Bernadette, costumes; Aza Hasad, Hebrew coach; Gavin McLean, dialect coach; Jessica Lester, supertitles; and Eric Dickman, sound.
