Our Mission, Vision, and Beliefs/Values


The Flynn encourages the enjoyment, understanding, and development of the performing arts in Vermont through diverse and engaging artistic experiences.


The Flynn is committed to making a positive impact and providing a world-class experience.  We believe in the transformative power of the performing arts to unify, strengthen, and inspire our community.


We believe that art ignites curiosity, fuels imagination and invites discovery of new and different experiences, diverse cultures, and artistic genres.

As stewards of our rich legacy, we are dedicated to preserving and protecting our beautiful historic art deco theater while ensuring our fiscal stability and a prosperous and sustainable future.

We believe passionately that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the creative energy, anticipation, excitement and joy of live performance.

We honor and celebrate artistry. From world-renowned performers to those just beginning their creative exploration—we all aspire to greatness in ourselves and in our work.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

The Flynn seeks to make the performing arts accessible to all through a commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion, accessibility, and anti-racism. We recognize that as an arts institution in a predominantly white state we have much work to do in becoming an anti-racist organization. We acknowledge the many systemic barriers in place, and commit to pursuing anti-racist and anti-oppressive policies and practices in our work to connect and unify communities, broaden and challenge beliefs, and influence future choices.

The Flynn recognizes the rich indigenous culture and heritage that existed long before our arrival. We acknowledge this Abénaki land and commit to policies and practices of cultural equity for today and future generations.
