Things To Do on Bainbridge Island This Week – July 29-August 4

It’s hard to believe, but the month of August gets underway this week. This summer that means the start of the Bainbridge Performing Arts Shakespeare Society’s popular “The Bard at IslandWood” will kick-off for a week-long run. That’s not all! Count on the fine folks at Kids’ Discovery Museum and the Bainbridge Island Public Library to provide family-friendly camps and performances. With everything to see and do, we think you’ll want to spend a few nights on our Bainbridge Island!

Monday, July 29

Camp Build It at Kids’ Discovery Museum
12:30 – 4:30 pm @ Kids’ Discovery Museum (301 Ravine Lane NE)
Tinker time! Put on your thinking hard hat and experiment with engineering. Campers, 5-7, will wear many hats when they join the KiDiMu Crew. They will “play architects” to develop their own idea, inspired by nature or a human-made structure of their choice. Like engineers, they will use scientific questions and experiment with different materials to plan and test their design. And just like a real construction crew, they will learn tool safety and work as a team to build their final project. In the process campers will learn how trial and error leads to success. Admission: Call for Availability and registration

The Bainbridge Performing Arts Shakespeare Society Presents: The Bard at IslandWood
7:00 – 9:00 pm @ IslandWood (4450 Blakely Avenue NE)
In the Summer of 2013, Shakespeare in the woods comes to Bainbridge Island. For one week in August, IslandWood’s Creaky Tree Meadow will transform into a stage for the BPA Shakespeare Society’s production of The Tempest. The Bard’s final play, this tale of vengeance, redemption, courtship, and art asks questions about loyalty. Taking place on an island, a marooned magician and his daughter come into contact with those that set them there. But is revenge worth the cost when time is running out? A story about magic, romance, and regret, The Tempest will entertain audiences of all ages, especially by taking advantage of the natural beauty of the Northwest. Performances begin on Aug. 1 and run through the 8th. Admission: Check the website
