Bishop Arts Theatre Center (BATC) is an award-winning, multicultural, multidisciplinary arts institution with IRC 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt status. Founded in September of 1993, our mission is to cultivate a diverse and vibrant arts community while creating sustainable opportunities for local and emerging artists through performances and education.
We offer a full season of theater performances, jazz concerts, a speaker series, and year-round arts education programs. The theatre is a cultural oasis for the next generation of acclaimed writers, directors, performers, and arts administrators.
Governed by ten board members, we impact over 30,000 artists, arts enthusiasts, and children each year via virtual and in-person seasonal performances and arts education programs.
