Hop Membership


Hop Members make it happen.

Hop membership helps to bring a diverse selection of groundbreaking performers to our stages, ensuring that the Hop remains an important cultural resource for our entire community. Membership also supports the Hop's education and outreach programming, providing free access to performances to underserved groups, matinee performances for regional schools, and free family-friendly shows. Members help make that possible!
