Bainbridge Performing Arts presents The EDGE Improv at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 6.
Kick off the New Year with The EDGE Improv and the troupe’s hilarious evening of imagination on demand. The EDGE takes center stage to ring in the New Year at BPA, where their riotous antics have inspired rave reviews from shrewd onlookers since the beginning of time.
For more than two laughter-filled decades, The EDGE Improv has delivered 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 says, “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 are $16 for adults, and $12 for seniors, students, youth, military and teachers, at www.bainbridgeperformingarts.org, by phone at 206-842-8569 or in person at BPA, 200 Madison Ave. North.
