Google maps and Apple Maps make it hard to find once you're in Fort Mason Center. Pro-tip, once you make the left into the parking lot, BATS is in the building in the on the left side of the parking lot (within the lot, not on the perimeter) across from The Long Now and Greens Restaurant.

More Information


Theatresports, a performance format invited by improv master Keith Johnstone, is played by leagues all over the world. Theatresports is improvisation played as a sporting event. Teams of improvisers compete in a series of scenes, games, and challenges vying for points awarded by three Olympic-style judges (who score each scene on a scale from one to five.)

BATS vs. Stanford is a special, annual competition featuring the talented college students who make up the Stanford Improvisors (a.k.a. the SImps). They will be squaring off against the old pros from the BATS Main Stage Company.

Directed by Lisa Rowland.
