We here at Sidekick Productions put on Birds and Bats: A Musical Parody this summer 2019. The whole journey started last summer when Maeve Kelley Baker decided to create a song for fun. That song inspired dialogue, and soon a story formed, Birds and Bats. Lee Simes and Brett Miller joined in and soon the three of them formed Sidekick Productions. During the corse of Birds and Bats, Sidekick Productions grew into what we are today, and hopefully we will continue to grow in the future.
