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.
