Upcoming Shows at HUGE

Here it is; the schedule for our stage from now until June! There are a few changes that you might notice – starting in April we’ve added a show at 7:00p on Saturdays! We are offering Double Feature tickets for the 7:00 and 8:00p show so you can catch them both.

I also want to highlight the return of KaBaam! The Improvised Comic Book to the stage. As we considered the spring season we realized the time was right for superheroes to save the day, but it wasn’t right for a large group of people to get together and audition. For that reason, the talented cast was assembled by Becky Hauser and Molly Ritchie. Molly agreed to direct the show along with her fearless Assistant Director, Alexis Camille. You’ll see Ari Newman, Chip Gehring, Denzel Belin, Erin Kennedy, Greg Parks, Jada Pulley, Jex Arzayus, Justin Betancourt, Susannah Eckberg, Will Schroeder team up and vanquish villainous foes. We can’t wait!
