Off Center is on the move!
On May 31, a group of amazing community volunteers helped us move into our new space. We are located in the same building, but one suite over! Our new mailing address is 294 North Winooski Avenue, Suite 116A , Burlinton VT 05401. Our email and contact information will all stay the same . Check out the slide show below of the move so far:
Next Phase: Fit-up
Now that we are moved into Suite 116A, the work is on to set up a brand new flexible black box performance studio. We are in the space formerly occupied by North End Studios B and C. This month we will be working hard, painting, setting up our tech, building a new stage floor, and preparing to open our doors for performance in July!
Once we have our new technical specs organized we will post all the details of the new space. In the meantime, renters can rest assured we will maintain our current audience capacity of 65, the tech will remain simple yet effective, and for the upcoming season we plan to keep our rental rates at the same level we have had since 2016.
We are booking now for summer and fall
Support our Move
We welcome your volunteer help! If you would like to be included in work party invitations (painting, installing the grid, floor etc), email firstname.lastname@example.org and request to be on the volunteer email chain
We are also raising money in a campaign to cover the costs of the move. All told, the move is projected to cost us $5000. All the labor is volunteer (excepting technical electrical installations), but the necessary materials have hard price tags. Every dollar donated will help us cover those costs and make the new performance studio a perfect haven for creation and performance.
Thank you for helping us.
in rehearsal at Off Center - The Bake Off - Vermont Stage Company
Vermont Stage Company is the very first group to use the new Off Center Studio - to rehearse for their annual theatrical staging The Bake Off!
Take one play, break it in three parts, add three directors and three casts, and--voilà!—you've got the 8th annual directing "bake off," an engaging exploration of the “ingredients" different directors use to create the same play. This year, that play is -THE FOREIGNER by Larry Shue.
