Welcome to The Burlington Performing Arts Centre’s 2016/2017 Season! In this sixth season, we are introducing all-in pricing and have tagged each show with their respective genre so you can discover more about each performer at a glance. You will find more of your favourite genres and a few new ones, including voices and genNEXT - programming geared towards 20-35 year olds. I am also proud to have so many award winning artists in our program this year.
I feel strongly that The Burlington Performing Arts Centre is a cultural hub for Burlington and the surrounding communities. We strive to nurture and support our local presenters and producers, to act as an energetic catalyst for a vigorous arts sector, to animate the community, and engage with you in meaningful arts experiences. A special thank you to Costin Manu, Programming and Community Engagement Manager who has facilitated a program that is at the highest professional standard, is accessible yet challenging, that creates a dialogue, and that is for people of all ages.
I invite you to be inspired – whether it’s a breathtaking dance performance, a comedian who makes you laugh until you cry, a singer who gives you chills, or a musician that charms your heart, mind and soul – these are the moments we need to invite into our lives. This is the power of the performing arts.
This theatre is more than a building. It’s a meeting place, a place of culture and vibrancy. Please join us as we build a creative community, and be inspired!
Message From The Board
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I want to express how fortunate we are to be able to experience a broad collection of vibrant and energetic performances right here in Burlington. From artistic and educational programming, to community outreach initiatives, The Burlington Performing Arts Centre continues to showcase the best in performing arts. We are confident the 2016/2017 Season will inspire you, your family and friends.
None of this would be possible without the contributions from our donors, sponsors, patrons, City and community partners, staff and volunteers. On behalf of the Board of Directors, a heartfelt thank you to each of you for your efforts and support.
We hope to see you at the theatre - soon!
