Poster art for BAAY youth theatre show Under the BedBAAY’s Company Z Presents: Under the Bed
An original play written and performed by BAAY students

About: Bellingham Arts Academy for Youth proudly presents Under the Bed. This is the first work produced by Company Z, BAAY’s current student-led play devising ensemble. Theatre devising is an experimental and collaborative art-making process. These young artists ages 13-17 have been crafting their story since the start of 2021. From the page to the stage, see their vision come to life in Company Z’s Under the Bed. Directed by Olivia Theilemann, BAAY’s Artistic Director.

“The time is now and the place is here. The Monster has taken control, transforming those who can’t follow the rules. It’s the adults who forget the rules first, leaving only the young believers to walk the earth… searching for the right combination of magic and truth to overcome evil.”
