W.I.T on Whidbey

Chicago may have its Second City but Whidbey has W.I.T. — the Whidbey Improv Team. The aptly named improv troupe will be performing as part of a fundraiser for the Impaired Driving Impact Panel of Island County at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, June 30 at The Whidbey Playhouse in Oak Harbor.

This year’s event “Comedy, Canapés, Magic & More!” has been expanded to include “JR” Russell, a retired Navy captain who has turned his passion for flying into performing magic. There will also be a silent auction. The evening begins 6:30 p.m. with “canapés” — enough to serve as dinner. The fun then kicks off about 7:30 p.m. with

interactive magic and comedy. Tickets for all this fun are only $17.50 in advance; $20 at the door (if any) and are available by calling IDIPIC at (360) 672-8219 or stopping by The Whidbey Playhouse. Reserved seating tickets can be picked up at the event. All proceeds benefit IDIPIC’s islandwide prevention work. For more information on IDIPIC or the event, visit
