BAT IMPROV

TBA

BAT IMPROV Night Returns at Dallas Lighthouse for the Blind!

Please make plans to join us for BAT Improv in the DLB auditorium at 4306 Capitol Avenue.  The Dallas Lighthouse Auditorium will be transformed into an entertaining theater.  The terrific team known as the Cult, will be performing at no charge.   This is their gift to the Dallas Lighthouse for the Blind team and our guests.

These professional actors are performing completely in the dark, which is precisely why it is called “BAT” Improv.  Whether you do or don’t have sight, they are enthusiastic about pleasing both audiences with their unique performance.  Let’s encourage these generous volunteers through your attendance as they customize their acts for our maximum pleasure. This is our 6th Improv event at the DLB.
