Our 30th Anniversary Season! When BATS started in 1986 it was embraced by performers and audiences alike. Thirty years and 18 "Best-of" awards later, we have developed a style that is all our own, while still taking risks and pushing the boundaries of improvised theater. Whether you see a show, take a class, or participate in one of our @ Work programs, we thank you joining us as we celebrate thirty years of Real. Funny. Theatre.
