MAMMA MIA! – the ultimate feel good show – is coming to Bainbridge Island May 2019

Bainbridge Performing Arts is excited to announce a thrilling change to its 2018 – 2019 Theatre Season lineup. MAMMA MIA! – the ultimate feel good show – will replace SHE LOVES ME in May 2019. The story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs propels an enchanting tale of love, laughter and friendship, creating an unforgettable show. A large cast, non-stop laughs and explosive dance numbers combine to make MAMMA MIA! a guaranteed smash hit. A mother. A daughter. Three possible dads. And a trip down the aisle you’ll never forget!

An award-winning, non-profit, community theatre, Bainbridge Performing Arts’ 2018 – 2019 lineup is steeped in intrigue, heart, and humor. In the words of Kim Hastings with AXS, “Bainbridge Performing Arts could be a primer to the other theaters in the south and mid-Sound on how to do things the right way.” Vibrant performances, hit shows, and breathtaking artistry have emerged as the BPA trademark, and – in recent years – BPA has drawn increasing awards and accolades from BroadwayWorld Seattle, Kitsap Sun, South Sound Critics Association, and more.

Don’t miss a minute of BPA’s 2018 – 2019 Season: RETURN TO THE FORBIDDEN PLANET, Shakespeare’s forgotten rock and roll masterpiece opens the season October 12 – 28, 2018. Based on the classic 1939 film of the same name, THE WIZARD OF OZ brings holiday enchantment for all ages December 7 – 22, 2018. Get ready for a bold, brave and blisteringly funny new work about feminism, legacy and standing up for one’s beliefs with THE REVOLUTIONISTS and a heady spring offering on March 8 – 24, 2019. Over 60 million people worldwide have fallen in love with the characters, the story, and the music that make MAMMA MIA! the ultimate feel-good show, and BPA is thrilled to add it to the 2018 – 2019 lineup with shows May 3 – 19, 2019. Thought to be the sunniest of all Shakespeare’s comedies, AS YOU LIKE IT will wrap up the season with The Bard at Bloedel: BPA’s 7th Annual Summertime Shakespeare offering.

BPA’s Theatre Season is rounded out by Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra, The EDGE Improv, BPA Theatre School classes and performances, and a whole lot more.

Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra presents a four-concert classical series featuring a star-studded cast of guest performers, masterworks, beloved favorites, original compositions, and special collaborations on November 10 & 11, 2018, February 16 & 17, 2019, April 13 & 14, 2019, and June 8 & 9, 2019.

The EDGE Improv delivers their riotous antics on First Saturdays all year long, and BPA Theatre School trains and showcases a rising generation of actors throughout the year.
