The Burlington Performing Arts Centre is thrilled to present our line-up of exceptional performances for students from kindergarten to grade 12.
These performances have been specifically curated for young audiences to be more than traditional field trips. Instead, they are unique cultural excursions that nurture the development of creative students who, in turn, build creative communities.

Helpful Information & FAQs
Can my student with special needs attend a performance?
The entire facility is wheelchair accessible. Inside the Main Theatre are designated seats for those with special needs as well as access to hearing assisted devices. Indicate at time of booking if any students have special needs that may affect seating accessibility (ie: wheelchair access, behaviour issues, EA/attendant ratio 1:1).
How long are the performances?
All shows are approximately 50-60 minutes in running length, with a short Q & A session (unless otherwise notified).
When do the performances start?
All morning shows start at 10:00 am. All afternoon shows start at 12:30 pm (unless otherwise notified).
Is there a coat check for student performances?
There is no coat check for student performances. Students should keep their belongings with them at all times and should store coats and personal items below their seats.
Do you accept late comers?
If your school is late for curtain time, latecomers will be seated at an appropriate break in the performance.

Actors give you a dedicated performance every time and your best behaviour is the greatest way to show your respect and appreciation! To make sure everyone in the audience and on the stage has a good time, we ask you to ensure that your students:
- Laugh but don’t chat
- Listen and don’t text, tweet or call (turn off all mobile devices)
- Be on the edge of their seat but not in anyone else’s (or the aisle)
- Take home a great experience but don’t take photographs
- Write notes later or they might miss something special
- Bring a hunger for knowledge but don’t bring food or drink into the theatre
