Bar Harbor's ImprovAcadia enters its 12th season

BAR HARBOR Improvisational comedy is one of the ultimate high-wire acts in the entertainment realm. Watching as a group of quick-thinking, quicker-witted actors strive to generate engaging performances on the fly can be both exhilarating and exhausting when improv is good, it can be very good, but when it's bad it's BAD.
