HUGE IMPROV THEATER
May 8, 2012

HUGE Improv Theater has been on my mind since it opened a year and some change ago. I was living in Korea, performing with Seoul City Improv, but I was rooting for my hometown improv theater with all I had. I watched as people donated time, effort, money, consultation, and optimism in droves to get the theater opened. After returning from Korea I immediately went to HUGE and asked to volunteer. They said yes! Hurrah! It's been a pleasure volunteering as a Technician and Box Office Attendant at HUGE. Everyone is playful, has fun and wants nothing more than for the theater to succeed and grow the improv audience in Minneapolis. We've made good progress so far with good people, but we have a lot of work to do. I'm happy I have a chance to help fantastic people doing wonderful things.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the happy faces leaving the theater after a fun evening of improv.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase communication between all volunteers. More effectively utilize the strengths of volunteers in generating and implementing ideas that can help the theater to become more well-known.

Come up with ways that make the volunteers feel like they're a part of the theater and not just helping keep certain aspects of the theater staffed.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

I've met many new people who perform and attend improv. A lot of them are weirdos ;) but they're fun.

I always feel good after volunteering at HUGE. Getting to watch performances and meet new people who love improv is a lot of fun.

Volunteer & Box Office Attendant, Technician.
