The EDGE Improv to Present Early Mother's Day Merriment at BPA, 5/2
Enjoy a lively, laugh-filled evening with The EDGE Improv and their anything-but-routine first-Saturday performance at Bainbridge Performing Arts. Their May 2nd performance is just right for an early Mother's Day, offering merriment for moms of all ages. The EDGE presents an ingeniously improvised evening of on-the-spot comedy, all from audience suggestions. The troupe's riotous antics have earned a devoted community of followers, and have inspired rave reviews and commentary from audience and troupe members alike.
Celebrating their 20th Anniversary Season, The EDGE enjoys a loyal following, and the special rapport they have with BPA audiences makes a difference in the quality of each show. "In some venues, you have to spend the first 10 minutes winning the audience over before things warm up," said player Susan MacPherson. "On Bainbridge Island, they go straight for the cliff from the start."
The EDGE troupe members include Ken Ballenger, Frank Buxton, John Ellis, Cynthia Lair, Susan MacPherson, Bhama Roget, Andrew Shields, Chris Soldevilla, and Matty Whitman.
