Providing a Home for the Performing Arts

The Flynn provides a well-equipped and managed home for the arts and services that include a box office, ushers (Flynn Spirits), concessions, and professional crew. While educational studios primarily serve the Flynn’s own education programs, the Flynn provides a performance venue for the Vermont Symphony Orchestra, the Vermont Youth Orchestra, Lyric Theatre, and Vermont Stage Company, as well as the UVM Lane Series, and many local and touring groups. The quality of our facilities and services attracts leading concert promoters and major events in Burlington. Public spaces include:
