Fargo-Moorhead Community Theatre gets $400,000 gift


Artist’s rendering of what the renovated Fargo-Moorhead Community Theatre would look like.

The Fargo-Moorhead Community Theatre is going to get a nice makeover, thanks to a generous gift from the Katherine Kilbourne Burgum Trust.

The gift, which totals $400,000, is the largest donation to date and the largest individual donation to the theatre in its history.

The gift is enough to fund two parts of a four-phase remodeling and expansion project. It will fund improvements to the theater’s accessibility as well as enclose the theater’s gazebo, creating a year-round space that can be used for rehearsals, meetings and receptions.

In conjunction with the gift, the FMCT is launching a $100,000 matching campaign to fund interior renovation efforts.

The Fargo-Moorhead Community Theatre enters its 65th season on July 1.
