Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA) presents The EDGE Improv
First Saturdays - September 6 & October 4 @ 7:30 p.m.
Celebrate The EDGE Improv’s 20th Anniversary Season on Bainbridge Island

The Edge Improv has performed to sell-out crowds regularly at BPA for two decades, and this season marks their 20th anniversary. On the first Saturday of each month, the troupe presents an ingeniously improvised evening of on-the-spot comedy, all from audience suggestions. The troupe’s riotous antics have earned a devoted community of followers, and have inspired rave reviews and commentary from audience and troupe members alike.

The EDGE enjoys a loyal following, and that established bond makes a difference in the quality of each show. “In some venues, you have to spend the first 10 minutes winning the audience over before things warm up,” said player Susan MacPherson. “On Bainbridge Island, they go straight for the cliff from the start.”

The EDGE troupe members include Ken Ballenger, Frank Buxton, John Ellis, Cynthia Lair, Susan MacPherson, Bhama Roget, Andrew Shields, Chris Soldevilla, and Matty Whitman. Visit www.theedgeimprov.com for video clips from past shows and visit The EDGE at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org for tickets, bios, upcoming performances and more.

The EDGE Improv appears next at BPA on Saturday, September 6 and October 4 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets, $16 for adults, and $12 for seniors, students, youth, military, and teachers, may be purchased online at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org, by phone at 206.842.8569 or in person at BPA, 200 Madison Avenue North, Bainbridge Island. BPA Box Office hours are 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, and one hour prior to each performance.

Bainbridge Performing Arts extends special thanks to The EDGE Improv’s 2014 – 2015 Corporate Sponsor Rolling Bay Café. BPA is supported, in part, by Bainbridge Community Foundation and One Call for All.
