The EDGE returns to BPA stage

Kick off the New Year and celebrate a night out at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 4 as The EDGE Improv offers imagination on demand, divined spontaneously from audience suggestions.

The troupe’s riotous antics have inspired rave reviews from shrewd onlookers for nearly a quarter century.

The members of The EDGE Improv ingeniously improvise facts of all persuasion. The troupe performs to sell-out crowds regularly at Bainbridge Performing Arts, where their shenanigans have earned a devoted community of followers seeking respite from life’s wearisome details.

They rely and thrive, members said, on audience participation, and those attending have witnessed ad-lib portrayals of the wackiest scenarios.

Troupe members include Ken Ballenger, John Ellis, Todd Erler, Cynthia Lair, Susan MacPherson, Bhama Roget, Andrew Shields, Chris Soldevilla, and Matty Whitman.

Patrons are requested to arrive no later than 7:20 p.m. prior to the performance.

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

BPA’s 1st Saturday Teen Tickets are $5 per youth at the BPA box office on the night of the show.

Teen tickets cannot be pre-booked and are subject to availability.

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