Did You Know?   Tickets sales usually only cover 40% or less of the cost of running a theater.

Without you, there is no BAT! You make theater possible! Make better live theater happen by donating as little as $5.00 or $200,000.00 or more! It's up to you. The amountmoney 1 is not important, but giving is. Become a BAT supporter today!

BAT is a not-for-profit (IRS 501(c)(3)) entity staffed by volunteers.  One hundred percent (100%) of your tax-deductible contribution goes toward producing better live theater, the construction of theater space in South King County, BAT's day-to-day overhead (rent, utilities, office supplies, and the like), and capital improvements!

BAT depends upon you for survival. We need cash, in-kind donations, and volunteers. BAT has been making better live theater since 1980, and its roots reach back to the first live theater in Burien in 195. Please help keep BAT going!!!
