BPA History - Celebrating 60 Years









Please join us for our 60th Anniversary Season to celebrate all that we have realized and all that we have yet to explore.

What arose from the impassioned and insightful quest of a handful of volunteers in 1956 flourishes today as BPA marks its 60th Anniversary Season. Bainbridge Performing Arts has emerged as a community theater in the very best sense of the phrase – serving as a fulcrum for the artistic heart of the island and offering a growing/gathering space for the creative collaborations of actors, musicians, singers, writers, poets, dancers, and designers.

Check out BPA's Mainstage history and performance locations!

BPA has entertained Bainbridge Island and beyond for six magic-filled decades, and we wouldn’t exist without the generous support of our friends, neighbors, community organizations, and local businesses. You have our enduring gratitude.
