LAND ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

The Community Theater Company of Burlington (Burlington Players) resides on the ancestral and unceded lands of the Massachusett people, and unceded, unsurrendered Pawtucket territory of the Pennacook. We honor these communities and the elders of these nations—past, present, and future—whose practices and spiritualities are tied to the land. Click here to read more.

Burlington Players Season Selection

These three shows have been selected with The Bridges of Madison County to complete our next season

Thank you! We hope to see you there!


Love/Sick

by John Cariani

2-9 m/w

A darker cousin to Almost, Maine, John Cariani’s LOVE/SICK is a collection of nine slightly twisted and completely hilarious short plays. Set on a Friday night in an alternate suburban reality, this 80-minute romp explores the pain and the joy that comes with being in love. Full of imperfect lovers and dreamers, LOVE/SICK is an unromantic comedy for the romantic in everyone.

Paint Night

by Carey Crim

0m, 6w

Six women get together for a much needed girls’ night out. The plan is to eat, drink and create works of art at a local Paint and Sip night. But as the alcohol flows (and truths and insecurities are revealed) six carefully curated lives begin to show their cracks. PAINT NIGHT is about what happens when we let shed our Instagram #blessed lives and get hilariously and heartbreakingly real.

Boy

by Ann Ziegler

3m, 2w

Inspired by a true story, Anna Ziegler’s BOY explores the tricky terrain of finding love amidst the confusion of sexual identity, and the inextricable bond between a doctor and patient. In the 1960s, a well-intentioned doctor convinces the parents of a male infant to raise their son as a girl after a terrible accident. Two decades later, the repercussions of that choice continue to unfold.



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.

COVID-19 Announcement

The Burlington Players are currently planning for a safe reopening of the theater in full compliance with all State and Federal guidelines and in a way that will make our audience, cast, and crew feel protected so everyone can enjoy the shows. Stay tuned for further details.

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 decided to cancel our 2020-21 season. We would have loved 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.
