Help the Hangar get a New Set of Wheels!

Support the Hangar's efforts to upgrade to a pre-owned cargo van.

A fundraising campaign for Hangar Theatre Company

For nearly 18 years, the Hangar Theatre has relied on a 1994 Isuzu Pickup Truck to transport large props, scenic materials, and other theatrical supplies. This 22-year-old vehicle has exceeded its useful lifespan.

  • At least 30 drivers have learned stick-shift on this pickup truck, which means ...
  • The clutch has been replaced three times
  • With only three months of local driving out of the year, there are still over 100,000 miles on the odometer
  • Safety standards are more stringent with newer vehicles
  • Maintenance costs are lower with newer vehicles, especially due to ...
  • Unexpected yet necessary urgent repairs for older vehicles
  • Inclement weather means: delaying transport of needed items or, since 'the show must go on,' risking damage to theatrical supplies. (How long do you think it takes for a soggy couch to dry out?)

A newer, quality pre-owned vehicle will ensure:

  • More flexibility in drivers (do you know how to drive a standard?)
  • Current safety standards for vehicles (airbags and seat belts are lifesavers)
  • Fewer unexpected repairs - and long-term cost savings
  • More efficient and safer transport of supplies, props, and materials

The Hangar Theatre received a $3,000 grant from the Legacy Foundation in support of this purchase. You can help the Hangar make a company cargo van a reality with a gift to match this grant. Thank you for your support!
