The Edge Improv returns to BPA

The Edge Improv returns to BPA

Perk up your fall harvest with a barrel of laughs courtesy of The EDGE Improv at an evening of imagination on demand at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 7 at Bainbridge Performing Arts.

The troupe’s riotous antics have inspired rave reviews for more than two laughter-filled decades.

The EDGE Improv delivers ingeniously improvised first-Saturday evenings of on-the-spot comedy, all from audience suggestions. The troupe performs to sell-out crowds regularly at BPA, where the troupe’s gambols and shenanigans have earned a devoted community of followers seeking respite from life’s wearisome routines and worries.

Troupe member Cynthia Lair said: “Only onstage with The EDGE is there an amusement park where you pay to sit in a hole, an elevator full of people taking a shower, and an exotic-dancing car repair shop. All totally believable.”

The EDGE troupe members include Ken Ballenger, Frank Buxton, John Ellis, Todd Erler, Cynthia Lair, Susan MacPherson, Bhama Roget, Andrew Shields, Chris Soldevilla and Matty Whitman.

Tickets, $16 for adults, and $12 for seniors, students, youth, military and teachers, may be purchased online at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org, by phone at 206-842-8569 or in person at BPA (200 Madison Ave. North).

BPA Box Office hours are 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, and one hour prior to each performance.
