Since Batavia is considered a small town, it seems unique to have incredible people perform in our facility. We love the priceless looks people give when we unveil the big names appearing in our upcoming touring seasons! We strive to provide an enchanting experience that starts way before you purchase your tickets.

We’ve had the privilege of working with icons such as the Osmond Brothers, Molly Ringwald, Ryan Stiles,  Colin Mochrie, Venessa Bayer from Saturday Night Live, Anthony Rapp, Adam Pascal, Tony Danza, Ed Asner, Jim Brickman, Jane Lynch and more. In fact, we will have had our 58th national touring show at the end of the 2019/2020 season!

You may ask how we get so many amazing people to make an appearance at the BFAC, the key is timing and connections. It’s estimated that the scheduling and planning for a touring show begin over a year before you enter the theatre to enjoy it! Some shows have been in the planning for years, just waiting for the right routing to get the show to our patrons. We have some incredible staff members working around the clock to reach out to the performers, making sure that they have all of the necessary technical and hospitable requirements to run such productions. We would love to have you stop by and see the shows we work so hard to present!
