About HUGE Theater
HUGE Improv Theater is an artist-led non-profit dedicated to supporting the Twin Cities improv community through performance and education.
History & Background
HUGE was founded by improvisers Jill Bernard, Joe Bozic, Mike Fotis, Nels Lennes, and Butch Roy in 2005, and moved into its first long-term home at 3037 Lyndale Avenue in 2011. It is the only theater in the Twin Cities dedicated exclusively to teaching and performing long-form improvisation. HUGE is proud to be host to over 500 shows and 600 students per year, and an ever-growing, ever-diversifying community of performers and enthusiasts. We are also host to improv festivals such as The Twin Cities Improv Festival, The Black and Funny Improv Festival, and The Tiny Funny Fest. We believe firmly that improv should be theater for everyone, regardless of race, gender, orientation, disability status, or background, and we are working hard and constantly to live up to that ideal.
HUGE Theater meets ADA requirements for our performers, students, and audiences, and strives to exceed them. Our theater is wheelchair accessible, and with reasonable notice we are happy to make seating accommodations based on patron need. Accessible parking is available next to the theater, parallel to the building. Please contact us with any accessibility concerns.
HUGE also employs a limited number of individuals in our community as limited-shift house managers, bartenders, and booth technicians - check out our Contact page to learn more!
