BPA’s team of theatre professionals work with volunteer cast members from Bainbridge, Kitsap, Seattle, and beyond to produce professional-quality, vigorously-supported, and enthusiastically-attended shows in our 245-seat facility on Bainbridge Island. Bainbridge is a beautiful 35-minute ferry ride from downtown Seattle and the theater is a short walk from the dock. We do provide walk-on ferry passes for our Seattle cast members for all rehearsals and performances.

A CHRISTMAS STORY, THE MUSICAL is the December production in our 60th Anniversary Season. BPA produces six Mainstage shows a year, including a summer Shakespeare production at nearby Bloedel Reserve. BPA also houses The Edge Improv, Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra, and BPA Theatre School.

BPA is supported, in part, by Bainbridge Community Foundation and One Call for All.
