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.

Due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts the Burlington Players have decided to postponed the production of

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.

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