Want to Tell a Story?

Do you want to tell a story in a Big Blue Door True Stories Jam? We want to hear it. We’re looking for true stories about the life and experiences of real people in the Charlottesville area.

Look over our upcoming show dates and themes to see what inspires you and make sure you’re available. Also read this post for what passes for our rules, and if you’re not sure how to put a story together this post might be helpful too.

When you have something email us at bigbluedoor.stories@gmail.com.

In the email’s subject heading write “Story for Oct Door Jam” or “Story for Nov Door Jam” or whatever month you want to do. In the email include 1) your name, 2) your phone number, 3) a very short bio, and 4) a short description of your story. (By short we mean about three sentences.)

You can sign up to perform in more than one month, although we ask that storytellers not perform in back-to-back months.

Also we reserve the right to ask for more information on your story or to not let you perform it at all. We will ruthlessly refuse all rants, diatribes, and proselytizing.

Do you want to tell a story and not sure where in your life to find one, or do you know what you want to tell but not sure how to tell it? Or are you just curious about what telling a story would be like? We’ve got a great six-session class for that.

Email bigbluedoor.stories@gmail.com and write “Telling True Stories class” in the subject heading, tell us your name, and phone number, and we’ll let you know when our next class is running. (Probably one will start late September or early October, and another one will start in November.)

  1. Hi,

    I would like to tell a story about law and disorder. This is the story of how, I , in a manic, in the moment, expression of myself was sentenced to 6 months in jail for contempt of court.

    Bio: Rosemarie is an actress who lives to tell stories to whom ever will listen. Her dog, ducky, gets an earful and her three children, Fiona, Rourke and Ammon had have about as much as they can take. Rosemarie longs to be on stage and she also wished she were thin.

    So, I hope it works out-

    Many thanks, Rosemarie Harper randomactsofpoverty@blogspot.com
