Burlington Student Theatre
Another Burlington organization for youth we support is the Burlington Children's Theatre. It is very successful, and their productions are well attended by the community. Student Theatre brings out the best in youth through experiences in the performing arts, building confidence and developing the tools and transferrable skills to help youth feel good about themselves, while empowering them to create their own lives. Their programs focus on the wellness and development of young people, fostering empathy, courage and critical thinking within a safe and nurturing environment. Participants practice the tools and transferrable skills they need to feel good about themselves and act with confidence in their everyday lives. Burlington Student Theatre offers drama classes year-round for children and youth 6 to 18 years and stages five performances per season.
