Become a Bubble Boy Backer

Arcade Comedy Theater is getting ready for its first musical and needs your help to bring Bubble Boy: The Musical to the main stage! Become an exclusive Bubble Boy Backer and you can enjoy perks like VIP reserved seats, Opening Weekend Party tickets, Improv Pop-Up Night with Bubble Boy cast members, Arcade bubble wands to use during the show, and more.

After the sold-out success of Arcade’s first-ever theatrical production of the cult-classic comedy SEX a.k.a. Wieners and Boobs in October 2018, Arcade sees the full-scale production of this musical as a bold next step to serve its audience and expand its programming goals. Your donation as a Bubble Boy Backer supports Arcade Comedy Theater, Pittsburgh’s only non-profit organization dedicated to elevating and advancing the art of comedy.

Bubble Boy Backer donations are accepted through Friday, August 23rd at 5pm. Reserved seating, Opening Weekend Party tickets, and invitations to the Rehearsal Sneak Peek will not be sold outside of the Bubble Boy Backers program, so grab them before they float away!

The Bubble Boy Backer program is supported by Arsenal Cider House and Bae Bae’s Kitchen.
