BATS performed sold-out shows of The Majestic, another original script by Terry Thorpe, at Folken from June 15-17, 2017. Terry Thorpe directed, while Lisa Watson produced. Pauline Vijfvinkel-Resoort was stage manager and Carolyn Mitchell was props manager. Esther Postuma was costume manager.

We received support from the Stavanger Kommune in the form of a cultural grant.

The Majestic is a love story set during the second world war. Our story takes place almost entirely on the stage and in the office of the Majestic Theatre. A hopeful star, Kate, joins the theatre group and soon falls in love with the owner’s son, Harry, who goes off to fight during World War II. While he is gone, Kate, Harry’s mother, and the Majestic Theatre group, including Lucille, an autistic girl taken in by the Harry’s mother, struggle to keep the theatre afloat and its players safe from the threat of a local mob madame.
