It’s July with Big Blue Door which means we want you to join us as we declare independence from ordinary, run-of-the-mill art and entertainment! We’ve got three awesomely great shows featuring our Summer Performance Ensembles, plus we have two classes open for registration: our famous Telling True Stories course, and our shorter Sketch Comedy Writing workshop!
Big Blue Door kicks off the month with First Friday Improv on Friday, July 6th in Studio 20 of McGuffey Art Center. The first Fridays of almost every month are McGuffey Art Center’s official art openings, featuring new monthly exhibits in the galleries all over the building, and whenever possible Big Blue Door joins the festivities with performances in our studio! And July 6th First Friday Improv is not just any First Friday Improv. It’s the debut performance of our summer improv ensembles! The art downstairs is free and the show upstairs at 7pm is only $5!
Big Blue Door is trying something new on the afternoon of July 14th! It’s our first-time-ever Special Summer Matinee at 5pm in Studio 20 of McGuffey Art Center! Our regular class showcases on Saturdays have been so much fun that we thought we’d try a matinee performance of Summer Improv Ensembles. For only $5 you can get in an early (air-conditioned!) show and have time for drinks or dinner afterward.
Big Blue Door is excited to be returning to Belmont Arts Collaborative with our Summer Improv Ensembles for BBD AT BAC! Yep, it’s a real, live theater with pre-sale tickets and everything! And it’s on 7pm, Thursday, July 19th especially for those who’ve missed our old third Thursday shows. By the way, we’ve got 14 performers in our summer run combining and recombining throughout the run, so not only is every show different, the ensembles are different every show!
Our summer performance run and Improv I course are full, but we still have spaces in our Telling True Stories course. Everyone has amazing stories and Big Blue Door’s Telling True Stories course will help you find your stories, learn to organize them, and learn how to share them! You’ll see your life differently, and amaze yourself! 6 Sunday evenings (6-830pm) plus a showcase. On sale for $185.
