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.

ImprovAcadia bringing laughs to Bangor

BANGOR – One of Maine’s preeminent improv theaters is going to spending some time right here in Bangor.

Bar Harbor’s ImprovAcadia will be bringing their brand of made-up-on-the-spot laughs to 51 Main Street over the coming weeks leading up to the kickoff of their 15th season at their theater on MDI.

They’ve already put together an interesting slate of programming – they’ll be doing versions of their standard show, of course, but there will also be a number of more specialized shows that will feature not just IA veterans, but players drawn from all corners of this region’s thriving improv community.

Here's a look at what’s coming:
