COVID policy at HUGE

To protect the health and safety of our community while continuing to perform live shows – the following policy is in effect at HUGE at all times:

– All patrons, staff, students and performers must be fully vaccinated
– Masks are required at all times (except for performers on stage)
– Beginning September 1st – proof of vaccination will be required for entry

Why is this policy necessary?
This decision was not taken lightly, and is to ensure the safety of our community — the price of your ticket should not include exposure to a deadly virus

What forms of proof are accepted?
Proof of vaccination may include a physical card or a photo of a complete vaccination card that shows a final dose at least fourteen days prior to the event

What precautions are being taken for classes?

Here are the COVID-19 procedures we’ve instituted to maximize safety at improv classes at HUGE. 

  • Everyone is vaccinated, and all students and teachers will show proof of vaccination at the first class.
  • We will all be wearing masks during class.  
  • We have reduced the class sizes, instead of 16-18 students, they are 12-14 students, to make sure there is adequate space to spread out. 
  • We ask that students with symptoms or close-contact with infected persons do not come to class. Emergency refunds available. 
  • We will have no games, exercises or scenes that involve physical contact. 
  • We have had the HVAC contractor check that our filters are clean. 
  • We have hand sanitizer and masks available. 
  • We will offer an improv showcase at the end of classes, the audience seating will be capped at 75% capacity, and they will show proof of vaccination and be masked. 
  • Students who have had exposure can return to class after one negative test, students who have had COVID-19 can return to class after two negative tests 24 hours apart. https://www.health.state.mn.us/diseases/coronavirus/quarguide.pdf
  • We will follow all the latest news and charts, to make any adjustments needed during the class term.  
  • We will always keep our COVID-19 policies up-to-date via a link on the front page of hugetheater.com
