Improv Comedy with Imagined Reality Improv!

| Add this to Calendar

No scripts! No safety net! Lots of laughs! Join Imagined Reality Improv in the Frank Buxton Auditorium. Everything is made up on-the-spot from audience suggestions -- very similar to the short-form comedy of the "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" TV show.

Beer and wine will be available before the show, starting at 6 pm. All proceeds from pre-show refreshments go to benefit the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art.

All ages are welcome to attend the show, but we anticipate some PG-13 or similar content.

Bar: 6 pm | Seating: 6:30 pm | Performance: 7 pm
Tickets: $10 general admission | $7 students, seniors and military

Saturday, September 8 - Purchase tickets HERE!

Since 2016, Imagined Reality Improv has been conjuring comedy out of thin air by taking audience suggestions and making up scenes on the pot. The seven members come from all walks of life – a scientist, two lawyers, a classical musician, an HR guru, a marketing expert, and even a teenage student – and each member brings something different to the performances. Their home stage is the Frank Buxton Auditorium at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art (BIMA). Show information can be found at or or by emailing


Michelle Allen – Michelle is very happy to be working with her amazing fellow improvisers! Her nine‐year stage resume includes acting, writing, directing, producing, stage management, improv, and teaching. Prior to that, she worked as a scientist & took time off to raise her two fabulous children who are now off to college.

Nancy Peterson – As a professional clarinetist, Nancy has spent most of her career performing the works of others. She found her inner "funny" through improv while living in Southern California. Now retired from teaching instrumental music, Nancy performs with Imagined Reality and directs an improv group in Port Ludlow. With music still a lifelong love, she also performs with the Port Angeles Symphony and Toot Sweet, a Victorian‐costumed clarinet quartet.

Marybeth Redmond – Marybeth has been acting, singing, dancing, and being silly on stage for the past ten years in Kitsap County. She has appeared with Bainbridge Performing Arts (BPA), Ovation!, Jewel Box Theater, Island Theater, and NW Actors Lab. Marybeth’s favorite role was playing Mrs. Tottendale in The Drowsy Chaperone at BPA because Mrs. T spent the whole show with no clue what was going on – just like improv!

Patrick Ryan – Patrick has been interested in comedic theater from a young age. As a herdsman in a school play, he fell from the stage, garnering laughs from the unexpected pratfall. Undaunted, his stage career continued with plum roles such as “townsfolk” or “background.” Patrick even spent a summer after high school telling jokes at Astroworld, an amusement park in Houston, Texas. Many years later, acting and improv classes led to stage roles with actual character names – not just “townsfolk” or “background” – and to him joining Imagined Reality.

Rose Weaver – Rose is 13 years old and has lived on Bainbridge Island her whole life. She started acting when she was 5 and has loved it ever since. Some of her favorite things are fashion, animals, track and field, friends, and school.

Tyler Weaver – Tyler had been doing improv for many years when he invited a bunch of friends to his basement with the idea of forming a group. Years later, here we are. He still has his day jobs as a father and a litigation consultant, though. Tyler plans to retire once he finally gets those royalties for inventing the “Walter White” look years before the TV show “Breaking Bad” existed.

Andrejs Zommers – Andrejs spent his youth hyping up crowds as the announcer and owner of a touring action sports show. He also played The Wheedle, a mascot of the Seattle Supersonics NBA team. A number of years ago, he began doing improv with his son, Talis, an emeritus member of Imagined Reality. Outside of improv, Andrejs also makes stuff up in the advertising world.
