Don’t miss Big Blue Door’s true stories show, Stories Confidential: Insult to Injury this Thursday at Belmont Arts Collaborative for true tales of humor and harm, comedy and tragedy, and things going unexpectedly wrong! Also it’s a special admission price because Charlottesville Inside Out is coming to film! Check out the lineup below!
Joel Jones is co-director of Big Blue Door. He teaches improv, storytelling, and writing.
Kelsey Keverline is a Biology and Public Policy double major at the University of Virginia who one day hopes to become a physician. When not performing with Big Blue Door, you can find her working in the Emergency Department, teaching yoga, or obsessively listening to NPR.
Charlie Gilliam likes late-night impulse buying. He’s been preparing pretty rigorously for this. He is also trying desperately to make human connections. He occasionally performs improv with Bent Theatre.
Jason Megill is handy with a screwdriver or a spreadsheet. He likes swimming, swing dancing and is a solid poker player. He tells a story most people would consider too embarrassing to discuss. If he leaves a dramatic pause, he has either forgotten the story or has stage fright.
Susan Gorman is a passionate singer and dancer whose talents are vastly under-appreciated by her family. She also enjoys tackling the elusive skill of improv. Her day jobs include working at her family’s winery and making leather toe guards for roller derby skaters (this is a true fact).
Jeanne Lynch is a CPA took a story telling class to improve her pitch to banks in obtaining client financing. Raising four children with her husband on a farm in Buckingham, she found she had so many other true stories to tell. (Jeanne refuses to give us a photo, but here’s a picture of Hollywood actress, Jane Lynch)
B.K. Marcus is a homeschooling dad, an essayist, and the leader of Big Blue Door’s summer story group.
