You can make a HUGE difference! Your dollars help create a Minneapolis home for scenic improvisation.
Come visit us at 3037 Lyndale Ave. S. in Minneapolis. We're enriching our community by creating a theater dedicated to long form improvisation – something missing from the otherwise diverse theater landscape here in the Twin Cities. Long form improvisation is the art of creating performances that are unscripted. It is different than playing improvised "games" or improvising within a scripted piece. HUGE wants to give long form improvisation – and the people who enjoy performing and watching it – a stage. Unfortunately, theaters cost money. Shelter Architecture has generously donated its design services to the project, many companies have donated construction materials and theater equipment, but we still need help with construction costs. Please consider making a donation today – large or small, every bit helps. Donate on this page, or if you prefer writing checks, donations can be mailed to: HUGE Theater 3037 Lyndale Ave S Minneapolis, MN 55408. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so you will receive a receipt for your taxes. HUGE is creating a place to laugh, learn and experience the magic that comes from spontaneous creation. Thank you for being part of it.
HUGE Theater began in 2005 with five improvisational theater performers - Butch Roy, Jill Bernard, Joe Bozic, Mike Fotis, and Nels Lennes – forming to produce “Creature Feature” and a weekly showcase in Southeast Minneapolis called “HUGE Wednesdays”. Members of HUGE have gone on to perform and teach at many improv festivals from Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, and Atlanta to Juneau, Alaska. Since then, HUGE has continued to produce works including “Ka-Baam!” and “Punch-Out” as well as collaborations with other groups for the shows “An Evening with Splendid Things” and “Mix Tape” at the Bryant Lake Bowl. Butch has taken over the longstanding Sunday night improv showcase “Improv A Go Go” and produces the Twin Cities Improv Festival, which concluded it’s third year in June 2009. Jill has traveled the country teaching and performing her acclaimed solo show “Drum Machine” and has been named “The Queen of Minneapolis Improv” by Chicago Magazine. Nels is directing Huge Theater productions and designing our website, while Mike and Joe are occupied as mainstage performers and educational directors for the Brave New Workshop, the nation's oldest satirical comedy theater.
