ImprovAcadia returns to Bangor

BANGOR – One of Maine’s most venerable improvisational institutions is back for another go-round in Bangor.

ImprovAcadia, the Bar Harbor-based improv theater that just wrapped up its 15th season, has returned to the Bangor area for a limited run. IA is continuing the partnership begun last year with Penobscot Theatre Company at PTC’s Dramatic Academy space, located at 51 Main St. in Bangor.

IA owner-operators Jen Shepard and Larrance Fingerhut began their six-week mini-season last weekend, with their “Harold Club” on Friday night. The show, named after a classic long-form improv structure, will feature groups of area improvisers of varying levels of experience. These groups will be divided into two teams; each team will take to the stage and present a set of long-form improv. These shows will take place on Friday evenings starting at 8 p.m. Tickets are $5.

ImprovAcadia: 15 years of fun

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.

However, when it comes to the work being done by ImprovAcadia, a short-form improv theater just beginning its 15th season at 15 Cottage Street in Bar Harbor, you’ll never have to worry about the latter. This is a group that is inevitably powered by speed and smarts, bringing some of the best improv you’re likely to see anywhere right into our own backyard.
