Hello 2015! Big Blue Door is uncorking more fun this year than a whole wine cellar full of champagne! We’re starting off January with bubbly shows and glasses of classes galore! This past summer Big Blue Door was juried into McGuffey Art Center as an Associate Member. Well, January is McGuffey’s New Members Show. The official opening, Fridays After Five, is tonight, January 2nd at 5:30pm. Big Blue Door Jammers will be performing a few stories as part of the festivities. Come by McGuffey for wine, snacks and true stories by Maggie Thornton, Emily Kilroy, and your humble narrator.
Winter classes begin Sunday, January 11th. We’re offering Improv 1, Improv 2, and an Advanced Harold Workshop (for graduates of our three basic levels). Big Blue Door’s winter classes are downtown so UVa students can take the trolley. BBD’s improv program is the only longform improv training course in Central Virginia. It’s incredibly fun, smart, and sharp. If you haven’t taken longform improv yet, sign up! You’ll be amazed by how amazing you are!
Thursday, January 15th will be Big Blue Door Slam at BON! bringing back audience favorites from our monthly Big Blue Door Jams to compete for the title of Big Blue Door Slam Grand Slammer! This is our fourth Slam and it will be emceed by three-time-Grand-Slammer Yousaf Sajid.
Finally, we’ll be finishing out the month with the start of our next improv series. Have you seen one of our Big Blue Door Unhinged longform improv shows at BON yet? If not, you must be a total loser and failure in all aspects of human existence, so why not turn your life around and come see Harold Night at BON on Saturday, January 31st?
