Champlain College's Cultural Access
Welcome to the Flynn Center for the Performing Arts! We are thrilled to partner with Champlain College to offer any full-time undergraduate student access to Flynn Center-presented performances throughout the 2016-2017 academic year for just $10 a ticket! The balance of the ticket cost will be paid by Champlain College.
The Flynn Center, located at 153 Main Street between Church and St. Paul Streets in the heart of downtown Burlington's entertainment district, is a nationally renowned performing arts venue offering the best in jazz, world music, dance, American roots music, Broadway tours, and more.
Please review and follow the simple guidelines and info on how to order tickets below to help you maximize your cultural experience. Download a copy of the season brochure (PDF) or view the online version.
Guidelines & Information
To order tickets to a performance simply go to the Flynn Center Box Office at 153 Main Street in Burlington or call the Flynntix phone line at 802-863-5966. Please have your Student ID with you when you visit or call as the Box Office will need to verify your account number.
For every ticket you order, a $10 student contribution will be required. The Box Office accepts cash and all major credit cards, as well as in-state checks. For phone orders, the Flynn Center will waive the usual $2.50/ ticket convenience charge. However, if you choose to order additional tickets (at full price) to a performance, the $2.50/ticket convenience charge for ordering over the phone will apply to each additional ticket.
Box Office hours are 10 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday, and 11am to 4 pm on Saturday. On nights of MainStage performances, the Box Office window stays open for in-person sales through showtime. On nights of FlynnSpace performances, the Box Office closes at the usual time and re-opens a half hour before showtime for in-person sales.
HOW DO I RECEIVE MY TICKETS?
For in-person purchases at the Flynn Center Box Office, you will be handed your tickets at the time of purchase. For telephone purchases, your tickets will be held for you to pick up during Box Office business hours or on the night of the show. Tickets can only be held in your name and you must present a photo ID to pick up your ticket.
WHAT IF MY FRIENDS AND I WANT TO SIT TOGETHER FOR A PERFORMANCE?
You are welcome to purchase additional tickets for friends or family at the regular ticket price at the time of your Cultural Access ticket order. If you have friends or family that would like to sit together but are purchasing tickets individually, one of you should place the first order and make the Box Office agent aware of the size of your group. The Box Office will be able to hold adjacent seats for your group. You will be given the location of the seats and they can be held for 24 hours for your friends or family to purchase by visiting or calling the Box Office and mentioning the seat location. Please note, however, that seats cannot be held for purchase within three days of a performance. If you wish to purchase adjacent seats within three days of a performance, you must order tickets at the same time—either by visiting or calling the Box Office together.
WHAT IF MY TICKET IS FOR A CLASS REQUIREMENT?
Tickets that are connected to a class will be arranged in advance by your instructor and will be provided at no cost to the student. In most cases these tickets will be distributed to students by their instructor at the Flynn Center prior to the performance. Remember that there is a real cost for these tickets as Champlain College will reimburse the Flynn for all those ordered for a class.
WHERE IS THE FLYNN CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS?
The Flynn Center has two venues, both located across from City Hall Park at 153 Main Street in Burlington. The MainStage is a restored Art Deco movie palace built in 1930 and seats 1411 people. FlynnSpace is next door and is an intimate 150-seat black box theater.
THERE ARE LOTS OF PERFORMANCES THAT COME THROUGH THE FLYNN—WHICH ONES ARE ELIGIBLE FOR THE CHAMPLAIN DISCOUNT?
Performances in the Flynn Center's 2016-2017 MainStage and FlynnSpace Series as well as other Flynn-presented events that are added through the year are valid. Performances at the Flynn presented by other promoters (i.e. Higher Ground, Vermont Symphony Orchestra, Vermont Stage Company, etc.) are not included. National Theatre Live at Palace 9 is also not included.
