Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA) presents
The EDGE Improv
Imagination on Demand with Bainbridge Island’s Favorite Improv Troupe
Saturday, September 7 @ 7:30 p.m. @ BPA

Celebrate a night out on Bainbridge Island September 7 as The EDGE Improv offers imagination on demand, divined spontaneously from audience suggestions. The troupe’s riotous antics have inspired rave reviews from shrewd onlookers since the dawn of time. Following one performance, audience member Sara M. said “I laughed until I cried, and then I laughed some more.” Another audience member raved, “Best Saturday night in a long time. Inspiring and funny!”

For nearly a quarter century, The EDGE Improv has ingeniously improvised facts of all persuasion. The troupe performs to sell-out crowds regularly at BPA where their shenanigans have earned a devoted community of followers seeking respite from life’s wearisome details.

The EDGE Improv relies and thrives on audience participation, and those attending have witnessed ad-lib portrayals of the wackiest scenarios.

Troupe members include Ken Ballenger, John Ellis, Todd Erler, Cynthia Lair, Susan MacPherson, Bhama Roget, Andrew Shields, Chris Soldevilla, and Matty Whitman. Visit The EDGE at www.theedgeimprov.com and www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org.

Collectively we have grown and reaped a communal bounty of grass-roots ARTivism, with people from all walks of life gathering under one roof to laugh, rage, and cry with friends, family, neighbors, and strangers.
