20 Allen St. Programs

There are several programs available to young theatre lovers at our "home base", the 20 Allen St. Stage & Black Box at the Old North End Community Center in Burlington, including various vacation camps and the Saturday Drama Club. Our vacation camps provide a fun way for children to get out of the house and create theatre while on break from school. We host camps both during the longer winter and summer breaks and during the short week-long breaks throughout the school year.

 20 Allen Street Programs

Independent Productions

We perform many full-scale productions independent from schools that are geared towards different age groups or children who are homeschooled. Through these performances, children have the opportunity to cultivate new friendships with students from different schools and backgrounds.

School Vacation Camps

Our vacation camps provide a fun way for children to get out of the house and create theatre during while on break from school. We host camps both during the longer winter and summer breaks and during the short week-long breaks throughout the school year.

The Saturday Drama Club: This weekly club meets from September through May and children ages 6-12 from all different schools and neighborhoods come together for a whirlwind morning to write, practice, and perform a completely original play. This program costs fifteen dollars a day (or whatever you can afford) and no registration is required ahead of time.

Scholarships

Financial support is available for all the above activities. These programs at 20 Allen St. represent the mission of Very Merry Theatre: all children, regardless of age, school, or financial background, are welcome to participate in and benefit from the strong relationships that develop through the creation of theatre.
