Coney Island Christmas rises for the flame

"Coney Island Christmas" moves - Burien Actors Theatre

The fire at BAT’s theater space tried to play Scrooge and stamp out “Coney Island Christmas.” Not so fast! As promised, BAT (maybe better named PHOENIX right now) has located a temporary space. The “Coney Island Christmas” is moving to 216 SW 153rd in Burien (The Hope in Hard Times museum exhibit). Friday, December 13 will be pay-what-you-can tech run. "Full" shows on Dec 14, 15, 20, 21 and 22. This Friday’s show starts at 8:30 pm. All other shows are at the regular times: Friday and Saturday at 8 pm, Sunday at 2 pm. PLEASE bring nonperishable food with you as admission to Hope in Hard Times and to help those in need.

THANK YOU Highline Historical Society for making this space available to BAT! THANK YOU Dukesbay Productions from Tacoma for the lighting and sound equipment loan! THANK YOU to all of BAT’s volunteers for stepping up to help. THANK YOU everyone who has voiced their support to BAT in this stressful time.

Please let the Burien City Council know that you want them to rebuild the existing theater space that was fire damaged and to support BAT in its time of need -
