The 2015/2016 Season marks our fifth Season of programming at The Burlington Performing Arts Centre. With a grand total of 68 artists and companies, this Season delivers an exciting mix of returning favourites, and exceptional performers gracing our stages for the first time; from Canadian music icons and hilarious comedians, to world music stars, and beloved childhood characters.
We are pleased to partner with local professional theatre companies KooGle Theatre Company, Nortesur Artistic Productions, and Tottering Biped Theatre again as part of our Theatre Series. Our partnership with the popular Live & Local Music Series also returns, with local musicians on stage over six presentations throughout the season. New this Season we are highlighting local acts in our lobby prior to a selection of events throughout the Season to provide pre-show entertainment and greater exposure for our local artists. These initiatives collectively support the growth of a strong regional theatre and music scene, focusing on Burlington artists.
I am thrilled to be a part of this incredible community where people love and appreciate the arts. I’d like to thank everyone who has contributed to The Burlington Performing Arts Centre’s current and future success – our Board of Directors, staff, donors, sponsors, patrons, community partners, and a very special thank you to our volunteers who generously share so much of their time with us.
Enjoy the show,
