FEBRUARY!

choc-box February at Big Blue Door is like a deluxe chocolate assortment of yum! For a quick list of upcoming shows, you can always check here. This winter Big Blue Door is running three improv groups: our two winter harold teams (A ‘harold’ is a type of improv performance), plus our monolog and story deconstruction group, The Experience. We’re also running a story group, and an oral history project!

McGuffey_4 The first Friday of every month means a new gallery opening at Big Blue Door’s home base, McGuffey Art Center, and whenever possible Big Blue Door joins the festivities with a show in our upstairs gallery. The first Friday in February will also be the first presentation of Big Blue Door’s winter Harold teams. Don’t miss two brand-new collectives of improv veterans and newcomers perform together in public for the first time, featuring The Harold, the original and most popular longform style. These teams are so new they don’t even have names yet.

ski-lift The winter harold run won’t let February get away without another show, and it’s a doozy. Big Blue Door is proud of our new association with The Front Porch, and we had such a great time there last week with The Experience, that we’re bringing our winter harold teams for a show as well!

single-head Speaking of The Experience (Big Blue Door’s unique monolog deconstruction comedy) as busy as the month is, we couldn’t let it go by without a show from these improv veterans. In keeping their experimental and adventurous nature, this show will be a strange hybrid of imrov, stories, and probably pizza. It’s the 430 Show, a mad mad mutant matinee!

oral-history Speaking of true stories, Big Blue Door has its first large-scale oral history collection project coming up. It’s called TrueVille. It’s something we’ve wanted to do for some time but finally it’s happening. We’re unbelievably excited and can’t wait to tell you more in a few days! Stay tuned!

improv1 UPDATE: The earlier version of the post mentioned that we might run another winter Improv I (our January Improv I filled up and we had to turn some folks away). However the city will soon be replacing the windows of out studio (For which we are grateful!) so we will be homeless for a few weeks and can’t run a class, but expect an Improv I on Saturday afternoons starting in April! And with new windows! Email classes@bigbluedoor.org for more information!
