Flynn Center for the Performing Arts

Partner since 2020

Burlington's "Wonder Theatre" was established in 1930 as a state-of-the-art vaudeville and motion pictures venue. The Flynn has endured a zigzagging history to become the renowned, world-class performing arts center it is today.

The Flynn has been at the center of Vermont's cultural landscape for 90 years. 200,000 people annually attend performances on the Main Stage and in Flynn Space, and an average of 35,000 young people attend more than 30 performances in the Flynn Student Matinee Series each year. Thousands more people discover their creative selves in Flynn classes and summer camps offered year-round in the Flynn studios and diverse community settings. 

The Flynn also continues to nourish the creative spirit in international, national, and regional artists, hosting residencies, commissioning new work, and providing rehearsal and performance space for the development of new projects. The Fynn is recognized internationally for artistic, educational, and community activities; a place for anyone seeking the transformative power of the arts and live performance.
