The Flynn Center for the Performing Arts is the largest arts organization in Vermont, presenting world-class performances, extensive arts education classes, programs, and workshops, as well as exhibitions. It encompasses a beautifully restored landmark 1,411-seat Art Deco Theater, a 180-seat black box experimental space, two studios, and a gallery, in downtown Burlington.
The theater itself is recognized for its rich history, having shown movies for 50 years before the community banded together to turn it into a performing arts venue. It is home to many Vermont performing groups and the box office serves as a regional ticketing agency. With broad-based community support, the Flynn has over 2,300 members; local, regional, and national donors; and serves over 200,000 each season. The Flynn’s curatorial vision is guided by the organizational mission: to present a diverse range of high-quality performances that expand the community’s cultural experiences and support artists in the development of new work. Flynn programming includes a balance of recognized masters and emerging new voices in dance, jazz, music, theatre, family programs and multi-disciplinary performance. We plan our programs one to two years in advance.
