Bainbridge Performing Arts’ 2019-2020 season has been announced and is set to include a variety of on-stage offerings including a cult classic, a magical tale just in time for the holidays, an intimate musical, a bold love story, and a spellbinding psychological thriller.
“The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” a cult classic and must-see for virgins and fans alike, opens the season in October.
BPA’s holiday production in December, Roald Dahl’s “Matilda The Musical,” is a magical story of an extraordinary girl who, armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind, dares to take a stand and change her own destiny.
In March 2020, the theater will stage “Fun Home,” a refreshingly honest, funny, and intimate musical about seeing one’s parents through grown-up eyes, based on the best-selling graphic novel by Alison Bechdel.
Kate Hamill’s adaptation of “Pride and Prejudice” takes center stage in May 2020. Bold, surprising, boisterous and timely, this updates the classic for a new era and explores the absurdities and thrills of finding your perfect (or imperfect) match in life.
The season concludes in July 2020 with “MacBeth” as the latest offering from The Bard at Bloedel: BPA’s eighth annual summertime Shakespeare show. Magic, murder, and mayhem abound in the beguiling meadow at the Bloedel Reserve.
The main stage offerings are rounded out by Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra performances, The EDGE Improv, BPA Theatre School classes and show, and a whole lot more.
BSO will present a four-concert classical series featuring a star-studded cast of guest performers, masterworks, beloved favorites, original compositions, and special collaborations on Nov. 9 and Nov. 10, 2019; Feb. 8 and Feb. 9, 2020; April 25 and April 26, 2020 (an off-site collaboration with Bainbridge Chorale to present Brahms’ “German Requiem”); and May 30 and May 31, 2020.
