Launch the New Year with laughter and The EDGE Improv on January 5

Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA) presents
The EDGE Improv
Saturday, January 5 @ 7:30 p.m. @ BPA

Launch the New Year with laughter and The EDGE Improv on January 5 at BPA. The troupe skillfully delivers imagination on demand, divined spontaneously from audience suggestions. As troupe member Cynthia Lair reflects, “Only onstage with The EDGE is there an amusement park where you pay to sit in a hole, an elevator full of people taking a shower, and an exotic dancing car repair shop. All totally believable.”

Performing to sell-out crowds regularly at BPA, the troupe’s shenanigans have earned a devoted community of followers seeking respite from life’s wearisome worries and unrelenting news cycle. The EDGE Improv ingeniously improvises facts of all persuasion, and the group’s riotous antics have inspired rave reviews from shrewd onlookers since the dawn of time.

The EDGE troupe members include Ken Ballenger, John Ellis, Todd Erler, Cynthia Lair, Susan MacPherson, Bhama Roget, Andrew Shields, Chris Soldevilla, and Matty Whitman. Visit The EDGE at www.theedgeimprov.com and www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org.
