Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA) presents
The EDGE Improv
Saturday, August 3 @ 7:30 p.m. @ BPA

Wrap up summer with an evening on the town: Dinner in Winslow. The EDGE at BPA. Dessert or drinks after the show! Celebrate a night out on Bainbridge Island August 3 as The EDGE Improv delivers imagination on demand, divined spontaneously from audience suggestions. Kathleen Jennings says, “The fun part is you never know what’s going to happen, but you’re right there in the middle of it.”

The EDGE Improv relies and thrives on audience participation, and those attending have witnessed some wondrous and sidesplitting happenings on the BPA stage – from troupe members prancing and dancing in a tribute to The Rockettes, to a presentation of “Madame Butterfly” with troupe members flitting about as cocoons, to the “Hallelujah Chorus” in the original Lithuanian, to generation of an island-wide power outage by hurling a twig at the electrical lines, and 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.
