Death. Love... can you have it both? Yep.

17 July 2006

Hello BATS whanau,

Two shows, one last week, both awesome - enough said! If you need any more reasons to book, see below...

Next week we have two shows opening - A homage to a young activist, and a tawdry tale of the American mid west. Both very different, both shaping up to be much talked about!

Also next week are a couple of special fundraising shows for Wheeler's Luck, to help those boys get over to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. A worthy cause to throw $20 at if ever I saw one.

All of the deets on this upcoming excitement follows, and we are still looking for the new Front of House Manager of our dreams... email for more info on this job.



Will you be deathin or lovin? - to book for any performance at BATS email with your name, the show, date and number of tickets. We will reply to confirm your booking and you can pay when you come to the show. Choice!
