Welcome 2019! Big Blue Door is back from the holidays rested and ready for fun! We’ve got our winter classes and shows starting this month! Plus all kinds of stuff for the year ahead!
Big Blue Door improv classes start this month with Improv I, and Improv III! Improv I is our fun and fabulous introduction to longform improv, showing you how to listen better, laugh more, and find the uniqueness of your own perspective! Improv III is our group course, focusing on group openings, group games, and fast and fluid teamwork! For schedules, course descriptions, and registration, click here!
In addition to improv Big Blue Door also offers classes in storytelling. Telling True Stories is an awesome 6-session course in finding and sharing the true stories from your own life. Learn how to start, what to include, where to find the story, and come away from the class with about 7 roughed-out stories and one polished story. Learn more here.
Big Blue Door’s winter performance run begins meeting this month, with two groups slated to perform this winter at McGuffey Art Center, The Bridge, and Belmont Arts Collaborative! Rehearsals start in January and performances in February! Nauder Namaky and Keaton Ray direct! Info and registration soon!
We just couldn’t wait for the winter performance groups to get revved up before getting a show on, so Nauder Namaky and Jessie Conover bring their smorgasbord of comedy, The Buildup to The Bridge on Saturday, January 19th. It’ll be two hours for great laughs plus cider, all for $10. Lineup soon!
What else do we have in store for 2019? Well, either in the winter or the spring we’re bringing back Feminine Hijinks, Charlottesville all-female improv group! Plus this year we’re teaching our first full writing course, Scene, Sketch, Scenario, and tied to that we’ll be producing at least one scripted show! Plus our ongoing improv and storytelling program!
