Bucket Brigade's Spring Giving Campaign 2024: Let’s Grow!

A huge THANK YOU to the 48 donors and 5 match donors for helping us exceed our goal of $12,500 so we can take another huge step toward premiering our new show this fall— Survivors of the Fire: stories and songs remembering the Great Hinckley Fire of 1894.

We're still looking seeking additional funding sources and sponsors for our site-specific performances at The Hinckley Fire Museum and Crooked Creek Retreat. If you still want to contribute to our spring campaign, your gift will go directly toward those performances Labor Day Weekend, on the 130th anniversary of the fire. Your gift is greatly appreciated by us, our artists, the museum and the residents of Hinckley!


Living things grow. They just do. It’s a beautifully natural process—a wonder to behold each spring as slumbering seeds wake to send tenacious sprouts up and steadying roots down. And, given the right conditions, those seedlings can flourish—spreading glorious evidence everywhere. Evidence that life goes on and on and on.

Art is similarly alive—pulsing with creative energy. Starting with a seed of an idea, and with care, attention and hard work, growing into something beautiful. We've experienced that miraculous journey over and over again through Bucket Brigade as we've written, developed and produced original theater with professional artists and student-artists for the past 13+ years. 

This spring we celebrate the growth and development of our newest piece of original theater premiering in the fall— Survivors of the Fire: Stories and Songs remembering the Great Hinckley Fire of 1894. A moving, meaningful, and at times surprisingly joyful new theatrical experience commemorating the 130th Anniversary of the Great Hinckley Fire: featuring toe-tapping, heart-string-plucking music of the era, harrowing first-hand accounts of the survivors, and moving tributes to those who perished. It’s a celebration of life— its joys and sorrows— and a heartening reminder that those we hold dear are never lost.

Your tax-deductible gift will help us premiere our new show this fall— including short performances at the Hinckley Fire Museum, a walking play version just outside of Hinckley on the weekend of the 130th anniversary (Labor Day Weekend), as well as a four week run at Art House North!
