Get Inspired at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre

The City of Burlington has been establishing itself on the cultural scene for many years . With events like the Sound of Music Festival, happening on June 13-16, Burlington is placed firmly on the map as a great destination for great music.

But what’s a Burlingtonian to do once the Sound of Music Festival packs up for the year and you’re desperate for a little culture?

World-class facility

The Burlington Performing Arts Centre is a multi-purpose facility that offers a main theatre for larger audiences, a community studio theatre for smaller events and a family lobby. The world-class theatre opened in the fall of 2011 with a mission “to provide the people of Burlington with a broad range of excellent performance opportunities that will both inspire and delight.”

More than shows

The theatre is able to host a wide variety of events, including weddings, corporate and community events, exhibitions, conferences and galas, and the Burlington Women’s Show.

Great location

The Burlington Performing Arts Centre is ideally located in downtown Burlington, just steps from all the action at the waterfront. There’s a parking garage attached to the theatre, and there are dozens of fantastic restaurants and cafes within walking distance of the theatre. Why not make your next date night in downtown Burlington and experience some great talent close to home?

Who’s coming to town?

The 2013 season was launched on May 8 with a great line-up. Some shows sell out early (Bruce Cockburn has already sold out for the end of August), so it’s worth your time to take a look now. Here are some upcoming shows:

  • June 12 & 13 – Burlington Studio Dance Showcase
  • June 18 & 19 – Burlington Footnotes: Gotta Sing, Gotta Dance
  • June 20 – Brott Music Festival: Beethoven’s 9th Symphony
  • June 22 & 23 – Burlington Dance Academy: Once Upon a Time

Have you been to the Burlington Performing Arts Centre lately? What’s your favourite show? Let us know in the comment section. Me? I’m very tempted to go and see Beauty and the Beast Junior, presented by the Burlington Student Theatre on July 25.
