Performer Payment Model

HUGE strives to pay artists on our stage as much as possible for their time and talent

    HUGE Theater Show Payment Model

    Ticket prices are set by the theater – Friday and Saturday shows are paid a flat fee based on attendance and HUGE Theater will perform all normal marketing and promotions to help shows succeed, with the expectation that casts and performers are doing so as well.

    Weekend Shows

    Friday/Saturday 8pm/9:30pm shows: $150 for every performance over 70 in attendance Friday/Saturday 10:30pm shows: $75 for every performance over 60 in attendance Late show pay is split $15 opener/$60 headliner for each instance.

    Minimum Payments

    There is a minimum payout equal to one paying performance per month so no show ever makes $0 for their run – so 8pm and 9:30pm shows have a minimum payout of $300 and 10:30 shows have a minimum payout of $150

    Non-standard shows/rental event shows (ie Saturday 6pm):

    First $50 per show to cover staffing Everything beyond is split 60/40 in favor of the artists


    Attendance numbers do NOT include comps issued by the cast

    Attendance numbers DO include free tickets used by students of HUGE

    Payments will be sent after the run of shows is complete.

    Payments can be a lump sum via check (to an individual or business entity, if you have one) or Square Cash payments either in lump sum or individual amounts to each performer – you will be asked for a breakdown of the amount each individual is to be paid and list of email addresses.

    Monday shows

    HUGE will compensate per performance For each show that you sell the equivalent of 70 full price tickets ($840 in the case of Monday nights at $12), you will receive a payout of $150.
    There is not a minimum payout for Monday shows.

    Student and performer tickets are rush - Shows have 10 comps per show (not per run) to use at their discretion
