Best Bets for Aug. 3-5 | The Bainbridge Blab

It’s First Friday!

The monthly art walk returns, from 6 to 8 p.m., boasting a bevy of beautiful venues and exquisite exhibitions.

For a complete list, visit www.bainbridgedowntown.org.

Along with the Art Walk, the month’s first Friday means the return of the Space Craft Vinyl Lounge, a live record playing party, hosted by Space Craft, will return to the Bainbridge Brewing Alehouse from 7 to 11 p.m.

Bring your own vinyl to spin, or just come to listen. The night promises to deliver a smile — if not a few moves on the dance floor.

Admission is free.

The Winslow Green summer concert series Music on the Green will continue from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday with a free public performance by Cuban Heels.

The remaining summer lineup includes: Choro Loco on Aug. 10; Nicolas Lofgren and friends on Aug. 17; The Ocean People on Aug. 24; and Psycho Sushi on Aug. 31.

Winslow Green is located at 100 Winslow Way West. Find “Winslow Green” on Facebook for the latest updates and show announcements.

Bainbridge Performing Arts Theatre School’s sumptious summer production of “Roald Dahl’s Willy Wonka Jr.,” is set for the stage through Sunday, Aug. 5. It features students in grades first through 10, and is directed by Pete Benson.

Musical direction is by Reece Sauvé; choreography by Heather Dawson; and costume design by Dawn Janow.

The delicious adventures experienced by Charlie Bucket on his visit to Willy Wonka’s mysterious chocolate factory light up the stage in this captivating adaptation of Dahl’s fantastical tale.

BPA’s beguiling and energetic cast includes Cameron Albee, Audrey Benson, Keira Bertram, Keara Callahan, Marina Correa, Margaret Coulter, Dolly Courtway, Brearley Curfman, Bella Decina, Leila Dugan, Fiona Dunn, Avery Holding, George Johnston, Jane Johnston, Anna Kim, Matthew Knight, Nicholas Knight, Roland Koch, Gracie Cate Mandlekorn, Sophia Marchinek, Judah Marshall, Eileen Miller, Allie Paulson-Houser, Sasha Paulson-Houser, Clara Pehling, Charlie Phillips, Trinity Schou, Matilda Sykes, Evelyn Thomas, Felicity Watson and Elizabeth West.

Performances will be 7 p.m. Friday and 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Tickets, $12 for adults, $8 for seniors, students, youth, military, and teachers — or $8.75 per person for families of four or more — may be purchased online at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org, by phone at 206-842-8569 or in person at BPA (200 Madison Ave. North).

The Bainbridge Island Fire Department will host a public open house at the new Station 21 (8895 Madison Ave. NE) from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday.

Ground was broken on the new facility, built by FORMA Construction and Mackenzie architecture firm, last May. The former, aged Station 21 building on Madison Avenue was closed in March 2017, as construction of the new and improved, approximately 27,000-square-foot facility began.

Station 21 will once again function as the headquarters of the organization, the new complex will also be department’s primary training area, and boast the capabilities necessary to act as island authorities’ combined emergency operations center during a large-scale disaster.

The Bainbridge Blab is your one-stop spot to get the 411 on all things 98110. From South Beach to Agate Passage, Battle Point to Rolling Bay, we’ve got the straight skinny on Bainbridge Island: the latest chatter, babble and burble. News, too.
