April at Big Blue Door is blooming like a field of bright, beautiful living things. Which we are! Our spring classes are underway, and we’ve got shows, a new storytelling group, and our amazing oral history project!
BIG BLUE DOOR: IMPROV NIGHT
The third Thursday of every month is Big Blue Door Improv Night at Cville Coffee. Big Blue Door creates hilarious longform improv with an ever-changing roster of styles and groups. April’s improv night features the premiere of Big Blue Door’s spring performance ensembles!
Thursday, April 20th
Show starts at 7pm!
TrueVille is Big Blue Door’s amazing oral history project inspired by Studs Terkel, the WPA, and StoryCorps, we’re conducting our own special interviews with your neighbors. And we’re starting with Charlottesville and Albemarle law enforcement. Want to kick in a few dollars? We need $3000 to finish, store, and transcribe the interviews, and another $3000 beyond that to create a play using passages and stories from the interviews.
BIG BLUE DOOR AT THE FRONT PORCH
On the fourth Saturdays of every month from January till June Big Blue Door visits the Front Porch, Charlottesville’s awesome roots music school on Water Street. April will feature Big Blue Door’s spring harold teams.
Saturday, April 22nd
Show starts at 8pm!
In Big Blue Door’s TrueVille oral history project (underway) and our Telling True Stories course (running), we’re also in the process of bringing back regular storytelling shows.
