The Burlington Performing Arts Centre is a multi-purpose facility that includes a main theatre, studio theatre and lobby to accommodate various functions.
The Main Theatre is a multi-purpose performance venue. Audience members will enjoy excellent sight-lines and proximity to the stage, world-class acoustics and an intimate connection to the performers on stage. This theatre includes a six-storey fly tower and an orchestra pit to accommodate more elaborate theatrical and musical productions. Seating 718 guests, this world-class theatre will delight your performers and audiences alike.
The Community Studio Theatre will host smaller-scale theatre performances for audiences up to 225 people or dinner theatre up to 150. The Community Studio Theatre was designed as a flexible “black box” space with 2,500 square feet of floor space to accommodate rehearsals, small receptions, meetings, recitals and rotating exhibits and can be used as a holding area for large stage productions.
The Family Lobby is a unique venue for receptions, exhibitions, corporate functions and civic events. The 5,000 square foot lobby is open with a glass roof and is encircled by a balcony level lobby above, creating a unique social setting.
The Burlington Performing Arts Centre is the only freestanding green performing arts centre in Canada. Built to Leadership in Environmental Design (LEED) standards, the result is a performing arts centre that has a reduced impact on the environment.
