HUGE Improv Theater
HUGE Improv Theater

Jill Bernard is the Director of Education & Board Treasurer HUGE Improv Theater. 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.

Your Yard Can Bee the Change

The Lawns to Legumes pilot program offers a combination of workshops, coaching, planting guides and cost-share funding (individual support grants) for installing pollinator-friendly native plantings in residential lawns. The program also includes demonstration neighborhoods, which are pollinator programs run by local governments and nonprofit organizations with support from the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR), and a public education campaign to raise awareness about creating pollinator habitat. BWSR is partnering with Metro Blooms and Blue Thumb – Planting for Clean Water to administer the program. Come learn more about this important program and how you can create a pollinator garden in you front lawn!
