The funding requests listed below are special projects. All monies donated to these items will be placed in a separate account and not used for normal general operating or performance funding. These funds will be used for their intended purposes. Some items may be purchased before full funding of the particular project. For example, as enough funds are collected to purchase a light fixture, the purchase will be made and the fixture added to our lighting design.

The federal government has decided to end the production of incandescent light bulbs this year and all of our current stage lighting uses incandescent bulbs.

We need to purchase a couple of additional dimmer packs for this season. These dimmer packs will cost us approximately

If you've ever been out to the Hip Pocket Theatre, you know we are an outdoor theater which means we have special needs not experienced by most other theaters. In particular, our entrance roads and parking lots are beginning to show wear and tear and need to be resurfaced by the addition of new road base (flex base).
