The Play Reading Committee has selected the Cut-to-30 show list from 60 titles submitted by members. Priority was given to shows with authors and casting flexibility that support BP's anti-racism, equity, and inclusivity goals, in addition to our artistic and business considerations.

The Cut to 30 is below and attached. The titles are live links to help you learn more about any of the plays.

A Note to Our Community

The Burlington Players stand by the black and brown communities in Massachusetts, throughout the country, and around the world. As artists, we have a platform and a voice that can speak out against injustice. As an arts organization, we as a board are meeting (virtually) to discuss what we can do as an organization and changes we need to make to our structure as a community theater. We pledge to learn, listen, and take actions that are within our means and will share that with our community in the coming weeks. We pledge to do our part and acknowledge our responsibility within the arts and in our hearts. Black Lives Matter. Our organization will not be silent to injustices.

The Burlington Players Board of Directors

COVID-19 Announcement

 After reviewing the current information about the COVID-19 global pandemic, CDC, state, and local guidance about safety precautions, and credible predictions of a resurgence, the Board of Directors of the Burlington Players have decided to cancel our 2020-21 season.  We would love nothing better than to be back rehearsing and performing for the community that has been so loyal and supportive, but we just can’t guarantee the health and safety of the audience, cast, and crew; and that is the bottom line.  We have seen other community theaters in our area make similar heart-breaking decisions and we continue monitoring conditions together to determine when we can reopen, with new protocols in place to protect health and safety. We are also trying to look at this downtime as an opportunity to make improvements to the theater that will benefit everyone.

Thank you and we look forward to the day when we see you at the Park Playhouse.

Stay Safe... We want to see you at our next show.
