He adds, “I will stage direct Urinetown, and Lucas Pakes who directed our inaugural season premiere production of Acts of Desperation, will take the reins for Bat Boy. We both look forward to collaborating with Chip, and bringing the best possible live performances to San Pedro.”

Urinetown The Musical opens July 31, 2008 and Bat Boy The Musical open October 9, 2008. All performances will be at the 1500-seat Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro, California.
