Featuring The Bats
March 22 – April 22
in The Sam

The boys at Acropolis U are too preoccupied with the Greek Games to treat their ladies right. But fierce feminist goddess, Liz Estrada, rallies her besties to take a stand – and campus chaos ensues. A Hip-Hop remix of Aristophanes’ classic comedy, ms. estrada may well be the Girl Anthem of 2018.

This world premiere will be music directed by Postell Pringle (a member of the Q Brothers), choreographed by Ana “Rokafella” Garcia.

Performances are Wednesday–Monday at 7pm, with weekend matinees at 3pm. Tickets start at $15 with the lowest priced tickets available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Get ready for some RUFF bitches! When Pipsy, a pedigree cocker spaniel, lands at the Bitchfield Animal Shelter, she becomes the center of a turf war between the dogs and the cats. Initially a long running #serialattheflea, LOCKED UP BITCHES is a sweet, psychotic, queer, and outrageously funny hip hop musical parody of a certain Netflix women’s prison drama.

World Premiere. Performances are Wednesdays at 7pm, Thursdays at 9pm and Friday-Saturday at 11pm. Tickets are $15.
