June with Big Blue Door is like a delectable spread of perfect deliciousness that makes wherever you are–vacation or staycation–blissful! We’ve got our full array of summer classes, plus shows!
Saturday, June 2nd the month kicks off with Big Blue Door’s Improv III Graduation Showcase, featuring graduates of our latest Improv III class performing a Harold and a Montage just for you! It’s in Studio 20 of McGuffey Art Center, it’s FREE and the fun starts at 5pm, so join us! Click for more info!
Speaking of graduating from classes, you can’t finish if you don’t start! What are you waiting for? Big Blue Door’s awesome summer Improv I:Character & Scene starts Sunday, June 10th! Improv I: Character & Scene is Charlottesville’s only introductory class in ‘longform improv comedy’ which is a fancy way of saying, it’s comedy of observation, character point of view, of appreciating your actual quirks and peeves. We don’t throw you on stage and say, be funny. We help you listen, observe, and discover the world through your own eyes. All the details here!
All Big Blue Door classes are designed to stand alone, so you can take Improv I without any expectation of going on to Improv II, but they also fit together to form an overall program that trains you how to be a smart, funny, confident performer. Graduates of the program form teams that perform in Big Blue Door shows and other shows throughout the area. This summer our greenhorns and veterans will mix and merge to create two performance groups that will perform together. If you’re a graduate of Improv III with Big Blue Door, there’s still time to sign up for our summer run! Rehearsals begin June 10th. more info
One of our awesome improv teams, Feminine Hijinks, will be performing as part of ‘An Evening of Improv’ on June 6th produced by Big Blue Door veteran, Larry Goldstein. They’ll share the bill with Playback Theater and Hamner Improv Theater. Feminine Hijinks is an all-female group that formed in the fall of 2017. More info soon!
Speaking of awesome shows, we’re bringing back one of our favorites. It’s FIRE & SMOKE, our unique combo of Big Blue Door veteran improvisers and spoken word poetry of The Fire Tigers. Plus the Fire Tigers will be bringing some talented friends! The show will be Saturday, June 30th at The Bridge PAI! Details soon!
