BATS Theatre Company Inc. is proud to present

Wrong Window

By Billy van Zandt and Jane Milmore

Directed by Peta Beattie

Van Zandt & Milmore pay tribute to Master of Horror Alfred Hitchcock, with this comedy whodunit. Off-and-on New York couple Marnie and Jeff enter an even more complicated phase of their relationship when they think they spy their cross-courtyard neighbor do away with his wife. After they draw their torn curtain, the lady vanishes, and suspicion places murder beyond a shadow of a doubt. The bumbling witnesses sneak into their neighbour’s apartment – 39 steps away – and the fun begins.

Peta Beattie

Peta has taught Drama to over 3000 students privately, in youth theatre and at various primary and secondary schools on the Sunshine Coast since 2000. She is currently studying Social Work and Drama Therapy and has a keen interest in promoting the Arts that connect to social issues. Peta has directed over 50 productions and has written numerous plays and adapted works for the stage. She also has a keen interest in classic literature and world history and many of her plays reflect this love. Shakespeare is one of Peta’s not-so-secret passions and the obsession extends to her knowing several plays word for word having acted and directed them on multiple occasions.

For BATS, Peta directed The Crucible (2007) (STAAR Award for Best Drama), To Kill a Mockingbird (2008), Pippin, Midsummer Night’s Dream (STAAR Award in 2000 for Best Production, Lighting, Stage Management), Oklahoma, Pippin, and Theatre Festival, One Act Play seasons. She taught BATS Youth Theatre from 1998 to 1999 before it became BYTE. Her acting credits for BATS include Eponine in Les Miserables in 2008, and Tybalt in Romeo and Juliet earlier this year.

Previously Peta has been on the BATS committee from 2005 until 2009, and joined the committee again this year as Production Manager.
