About Us:

Bainbridge Performing Arts promotes appreciation of and participation in the performing arts to build, educate and inspire our vibrant, creative community.

What began in 1956 as the only community organization to combine theatre, dance and music on Bainbridge Island thrives still today. A handful of volunteers with deep visionary roots, an eagerness for hard work, a readiness to perform anywhere, and financial allegiance planted a seed that flourished. Now, seamlessly woven into the fabric of Island life, BPA has emerged as the quintessential heart of Bainbridge Island 's artistic community, a gathering place for the energy, talent, and spirit of artists, writers, directors, musicians, dancers, students, volunteers, and impassioned audience members. Patrons from Bainbridge Island, Kitsap County, the Olympic Peninsula, Seattle, and beyond enjoy events at BPA.

BPA originally was named "Bainbridge Light Opera". The first musical production in 1956 was a hit and theatre on Bainbridge has never left. For 37 years, Bainbridge Performing Arts performed wherever they could - Timber Lodge, Commodore Middle School, North Kitsap auditorium, Bangor, a Circus tent on High School Road, and even a converted grocery store. The Playhouse was built in 1993 through a $1.2 million fundraising campaign. The facility boasts a 245-seat theater with professional sound and light.

Seats are on the smaller side, but they are not uncomfortable. Bainbridge is fortunate to have a local community space such as this and it facilitates many fun and diverse musical and theatrical performances.

I have been to theaters all over the world, & enjoyed all types of performances .My daughter in law got tickets to the Bainbridge Island Performing Arts Theater for a musical she knew I would enjoy. I was very, very pleased of the facility & the Professional production. I am a professional musician & I was impressed with the entire cast, crew &orchestra. This is a great, intimate theater .

What a wonderful production house in such a tight knit community! They serve wine/beer/cocktails during the open house/intermission with impeccable service! The chairs are kind of old but the productions are so good that you'll soon forget about it.
