Improvision is our collaboration with Reel Pizza now in its 9th season. Reel Pizza shows a really bad film with no sound and the cast of ImprovAcadia improvises an entirely new dialogue and sound track based on an audience inspired suggestion for a film style. Hilarity ensues.

Friday, 6/2
Sunday, 7/16
Sunday, 8/13
Friday, 9/15
Friday, 10/13

All shows are at 11pm.

Reel Pizza is located at 33 Kennebec Place, Bar Harbor 207-288-3811

Tickets go on sale at 4:30 the day of the performance at Reel Pizza
