BPA unveils 2018-29 season lineup

Bainbridge Performing Arts has announced the slated offerings of its 2018–2019 season.

An award-winning nonprofit community theatre, BPA has chosen a variety of productions steeped in intrigue, heart, and humor for the upcoming year.

In the words of digital ticket outlet AXS’ Kim Hastings: “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, the South Sound Critics Association and others.

This year, “Return to Forbidden Planet,” Shakespeare’s forgotten rock-and-roll masterpiece, opens the season in October.

Then, based on the classic 1939 film of the same name, “The Wizard of Oz” will bring holiday enchantment for all ages in December.

Get ready for a bold, brave and blisteringly funny new work about feminism, legacy and standing up for one’s beliefs with “The Revolutionists” in March.

In a scented case of mistaken identity and letter writing, “She Loves Me,” coming in May, recounts the tale of two feuding perfume clerks have no idea that they are in love.

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 seventh annual summertime Shakespeare offering.

Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra will present a four-concert classical series featuring a star-studded cast of guest performers, masterworks, beloved favorites, original composition, and special collaborations on Nov. 10 and 11; Feb. 16 and Feb. 17, 2019; April 13 and April 14, 2019; and June 8 and June 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.
