I have been attending performances at Drury Lane Theatrical Productions since the 90s and have never been disappointed. The theatre itself has a cozy atmosphere, seats roughly 150 cabaret style. They have a friendly bar staff (all volunteers) who are happy to serve beer, wine and soft drinks and even a free basket of chips. The shows are high quality, some of the performers could easily have been professional. I love to see the same people taking on different characters in different productions as well as some new faces every time I go. Music Hall is especially fun. I enjoy getting involved with the chairman (whomever he may be that year) and engaging with the cast when they often break the fourth wall. I would go to Drury Lane over BPAC any day. It is far less expensive, table service is available, they are actually performing shows I am interested in and they have a sense of community that just cannot be topped. If you have been in Burlington for the 40 years this group has been operating and you haven't seen them you have really been missing out!
I have visited Drury Lane many times in the past few years, and I have always had fun there. Their season consists of a musical late in the fall, a cabaret show called Music Hall late in the winter, and another musical in the spring. The doors normally open an hour before show time, and it is advisable to arrive 20-30 minutes early so you can find a parking spot and get settled in. As the lot is shared with other tenants, the very last guests sometimes need to park in a neighbouring lot. The theater is arranged with 22 tables of 6-8. Your ticket guarantees a specific table, but not a specific seat, and you may be sharing your table with other patrons if you haven't purchased it for yourself. At the back of the theater there is a cash bar. Before the show and at intermission you purchase drink tickets first, then go to the bar which has beer, spirits, wine, and potato chips. As far as I know there is no ATM on site, so be sure to bring cash. The best way to get your tickets is in advance by phone or by visiting the box office; there is no online purchasing, and no indication online of whether or not the show is sold out on a given night. Often tickets are available at the door, but groups may not always be seated together if you buy last-minute. If you like supporting local arts groups, this one is worth checking out.
