Things To Do on Bainbridge Island This Week – September 9-15

For our regular list of Things To Do on Bainbridge Island, we hope you like the arts, because this week’s calendar is chock full of artistic events for the entire family – from Tuesday Tunes at KiDiMu, to a special exhibition at Bainbridge Island Museum of Art and the Island Music Guild’s annual fundraiser. Should you wish to engage in some lively conversation, however, two big talks – one about sustainability and another about “green” power – should fit the bill. As always, it’s an impressive mix of things to do on Bainbridge Island!

Sound Theatre Company presents The Wild Party at Bainbridge Performing Arts

Back-to-school is all about the kids, but this September, treat yourself to a grown-up evening out! Suitable strictly for ages 18 and over, The Wild Party is adapted from a book-length poem written during and about the Roaring Twenties. It tells the story of one wild evening in a Manhattan apartment and a party to end all parties. Corey McDaniel directs this provocative staging with musical direction by Carl Petrillo, and choreography by Jessica Low. The production features the physical and vocal talents of an ensemble of young professional musical theatre artists, many of whom will be familiar to BPA audiences. Admission: $20
