Help Us Bring Back 'UNDER THE CANOPY' Series in 2022!

With the amazing support of our local community, the non-profit Firehouse Performing Arts Center (FPAC) and it’s Hook & Ladder Theater and Mission Room performance spaces have successfully survived the numerous challenges of the past (20) months. First pivoting to broadcasting HookStream content starting in June of 2020 for home-viewing, and again pivoting in April 2021 safely outside for our (6) month Under the Canopy (UTC) season. 

As temps now drop and we all begin to move back inside for winter, the infection numbers are once again surging statewide. As a result of this relative uncertainty, FPAC is limiting indoor capacity this winter and actively planning for a similar seasonality of performance schedules in 2022, including another UTC outdoor performance season starting in late-April. 

The return to safe outdoor UTC shows in 2022 comes with significant additional expense, mainly the canopy itself. We are fortunate to have a great group of committed volunteers, but we need your help to raise the $30,000 needed to again reserve this unique covering that allows our UTC shows to go on rain/shine in 2022. 

Please consider joining this community and supporting the performing arts in south Minneapolis and beyond with a contribution today. (For those interested in supporting FPAC year-round with smaller monthly contributions, which help us better budget and plan programming activities, please consider joining our MPLS Club 21 Patreon today!

We are also happy to announce that two matching grants from The HIVE Realty and 10-25 Tomorrow Foundation have already been lined-up so your one-time GTMD contribution will deliver double-impact for this important arts organization in 2021. 

Thank you in advance for your thoughtful consideration. 

Most sincerely
~ Team Hook & Ladder
