Kick off the New Year with The EDGE Improv January 2

Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA) presents
The EDGE Improv
Saturday, January 2 @ 7:30 p.m.

Kick off the New Year with The EDGE Improv, and join them January 2 for an ingeniously improvised evening of on-the-spot comedy, all from audience suggestions. For more than two laughter-filled decades at Bainbridge Performing Arts, the troupe’s riotous antics have inspired rave reviews from people from all walks of life.

The EDGE is regularly greeted by sell-out crowds on the first Saturday of each month, and their capers have earned a devoted community of followers that favorably impacts 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.”

Troupe members include Ken Ballenger, Frank Buxton, John Ellis, Cynthia Lair, Susan MacPherson, Bhama Roget, Andrew Shields, Chris Soldevilla, Nathan Whitehouse, and Matty Whitman. Visit The EDGE online at and for tickets, bios, upcoming performances, video clips, and more.
