Few chances left to see ‘Our Town,’ ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’ in Batavia

The Batavia Theatre Project offers several ways to see Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town” on a budget, such as Pay What You Can nights and half-price Rush Tickets.

Thursday performances on Aug. 14 and 21 are Pay What You Can performances.
Patrons can see this critically acclaimed play for a donation.

The theater is also offering half-priced Rush Tickets at the door 15 minutes before any performance. Rush Tickets must be paid for in cash.

As always, patrons may chose to purchase tickets in a Flex Package for group discount.

In addition, any patron may bring in a can or box of nonperishable food to donate to the Christian Help Center and receive an additional $1 off per item, up to $5.

“We offer these deals because we never want finances to come between potential patrons and live theatre,” said theatre President Adam Haskell. “At the same time, ‘Our Town’ is the only show that isn’t free this season.
Supporting this show is the best way to support the Batavia Theatre Project and help us continue to offer free Shakespeare in Sycamore Park and other services.”

Performances of “Our Town” will be Aug 14, 15, 21, 22, and 23 at 7 p.m. and Aug 24 at 2 p.m. Tickets are available online at www.bataviatheatreproject.com, at the door, or purchased at the theater Box Office, located in the old water treatment plant at 61 Lou Darbro Place.

There are only two free performances of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” left on Aug. 16 at 7 p.m. and Aug. 17 at 2 p.m. Please bring a lawn chair or blanket to enjoy the show.
