We’re so excited to return to live performances this summer.

But our first priority is to keep our artists, audience, and community safe.

So we’re making some changes and taking special care. Here’s what you can expect when you return to BVT this summer….

We're Moving Outside!

 To help maintain fresh clean air for all, we’ll be performing “al fresco” as they say, on a stage we’ll construct in the BVT parking lot. The theater lobby will be open for restroom use only. And we won’t be offering concessions sales this summer.

In an exciting update, because state mandates have been relaxed due to a 70% vaccination rate, we are increasing our seating at each performance to 60 seats! Way to go New York State!

Safe Ticketing

We’re excited to announce that we will now be able to offer walk-up, day-of ticket sales! The box office will be open one hour prior to showtime so that you can purchase tickets the same day of the performance, pending availability

When you purchase your ticket you’ll be asked for a phone number for contact tracing.


UPDATE: Due to the latest mandates from the state, vaccinated persons are no longer required to wear a mask (inside or out) while attending a performance at BVT.  Unvaccinated patrons will be expected to keep their masks on at all times. 

We’ll ask you not to attend if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID 19, have tested positive, or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive. (Any ticket holder who can’t attend due to illness or exposure will be provided with a virtual link to enjoy the show safely from home .)
