Hustle into spring with The EDGE Improv and an ingeniously improvised evening of on-the-spot comedy, all from audience suggestions, at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 1.

For nearly two decades, the troupe’s riotous antics have inspired rave reviews from audience members. The troupe has earned a devoted following and performs to sell-out crowds regularly at BPA. Members include Ken Ballenger, Frank Buxton, John Ellis, Cynthia Lair, Susan MacPherson, Bhama Roget, Andrew Shields, Chris Soldevilla and Matty Whitman.

“We can’t do it without you so please help us," Buxton joked. "Otherwise we’ll have to present our version of 'American Hustle' with the boys’ shirts open to the navel.”

Tickets are $16 for adults, and $12 for seniors, students, youth, military, and teachers and are available at 206-842-8569 or
