Best Bets for May 17-19 | The Bainbridge Blab

The stage is all the rage this weekend on Bainbridge Island, with three distinct theatrical offerings in the works for those seeking a night out.

First, Bainbridge Performing Arts continues their production of “Mamma Mia!” (read the full story here), and the Lesser Known Players are staging “the other ABBA show,” “27 Short Plays About Being Murdered in a Hotel by ABBA: A Play” at Rolling Bay Hall (read the full feature).

Also, Imagined Reality Improv will present another evening of live improv comedy Saturday in the Frank Buxton Auditorium at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday, May 18.

Doors open at 6 for refreshments, with seating following at 6:30 p.m.

Imagined Reality Improv will bring the funny; no scripts, no safety net, but lots of laughs. Everything is made up on-the-spot from audience suggestions, and the format is very similar to the short-form comedy of the “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” TV show.

Tickets are $10, but groups of four or more can purchase them online for $8 a ticket. Beer and wine will be available before the show, starting at 6 p.m.

All proceeds from pre-show refreshments go to benefit the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art.

All ages are welcome to attend the show, but some PG-13 or similar content is anticipated.
