October is big big big at Big Blue Door! We have five–count ’em five–shows, plus a late fall class added just for you!
The excitement kicks off on the very first Friday of October, October 4th, with FIRST FRIDAY IMPROV! On the first Friday of most months McGuffey Art Center presents brand new exhibits in its galleries, and whenever possible Big Blue Door joins the festivities with an improv show at 7pm in Studio 20 on the second floor. The art downstairs is free and the show upstairs is only $10 cash! Details here.
The very next day, Saturday, Oct 5th, graduates of Big Blue Door’s most recent Telling True Stories course share true personal stories! It’s free. It runs from 1-2pm. It’s Big Blue Door’s TELLING TRUE STORIES SHOWCASE. Details here.
Big Blue Door had so much fun this summer performing improv at our Cardinal Point Winery shows that we’ve got a Cardinal Point reunion! It’s BIG BLUE DOOR at CARDINAL POINT on Saturday, Oct 12th featuring fall improv groups performing at the winery. It’s an early show–6:30pm–so you won’t be driving the country roads home too late, and there will be a food truck for dinner. Come enjoy some wine and comedy!
The third Saturday of every month Big Blue Door performs improv at The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative. Come October 19th at 8pm for BIG BLUE DOOR @THE BRIDGE! Enjoy Potters Cider and Charlottesville’s sharpest, funniest, bestest improv comedy! It’s the comedy that’s as smart as you are. And sometimes as weird. $10 Cash.
Big Blue Door’s first fall Telling True Stories course ends this week with the show on the 5th, but we’re adding another TELLING TRUE STORIES COURSE for your late-fall storytelling needs! Come learn to find and tell the strange, sad, funny, and amazing true stories from your actual life! Sunday afternoons 1:15pm-3:45pm starting October 20th. Details and sign up here.
We’re ending the month with the final scheduled performance of Big Blue Door’s fall improv ensembles Mrs Stevens’ Basement and Janky Scamps! Plus a special presentation by The Administration!
