Dear Friends:

The Metropolitan Regional Arts Council has issued HUGE Improv Theater a challenge, and there isn't much time. If we raise $4,000 by January 24th, they'll honor our commitment to improvisational theater with a $5,000 grant to create a season of original improvisational theater.

Our plans are big. HUGE is actively working toward establishing a theater space for improvisational theater, and every show we produce increases awareness, raises money, and adds equipment to get us closer to that goal.

HUGE's new production for 2010 is Overheard in Minneapolis, inspired by the website of the same name where users submit conversational snippets overheard throughout Minneapolis which strike the casual observer in a memorable way. The show will consist of these dialogues, randomly chosen to start scenes which will weave together to create a theatrical improvisational show filled with depth and texture, unifying themes and memorable characters. We'll employ staging and lighting technology to create a scripted, rehearsed feel to an unscripted production and showcase the possibilities of unscripted theater.

We need your help. In improvisor dollars, $4,000 is an awful lot of money. Here's just a few examples of where your donation will go for Overheard and the future HUGE Improv Theater

Item Estimated Cost
Lightboard and dimmers $3,000
Soundboard and cables $750
Marketing $1,500
Space and Equipment rental $5,000

You may donate online with your PayPal account or credit card at

Or send check by mail to:
HUGE Theater
296 Norman Ridge Drive
Bloomington, MN 55437.

We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, so you will receive a receipt for your taxes.
On behalf of the board of Huge Theater - Nels Lennes, Jill Bernard and Butch Roy - I thank you for your assistance.

Sincerely,

Jill Bernard
Secretary & Director of Education
Huge Improv Theater

P.S. Mark your calendars for the March 5th Fundraiser Bash, hope to see you there!
