Hatbox Theatre is a 99-seat live performing arts venue located in a former retail storefront at the Steeplegate Mall in the capital city of Concord, NH. Financed through private funding, Andrew Pinard put together a team that utilized salvage seating from a high school auditorium renovation, donated lighting and sound equipment and thousands of volunteer labor hours to develop the space. In its first year, there have been 172 performances with over 4,000 tickets sold. Programming is diverse with a cooperative programming model and revenue share. Its creative use of space and unique financial model garnered much attention from both local and national press. Discussion will include development of the space, programming and financial systems, and running a cooperative performing arts space.
