Open to performers, crew, and volunteers, the Kick-off Cookout is a welcoming social event... with food!

We'll be providing food to suit a variety of dietary needs (vegetarian, vegan, guten-free, etc.) but it's challenging to accommodate everyone. If you have personal needs, please feel free to bring something!

The party is at a private home on the Red line (the same train line that serves the theatre). The address and directions will be provided to all invitees.

In addition to food, there's a hot tub! If you want to use the hot tub, please bring your own towel.

The Cookout is sponsored by Viva Vermont! Burlesque, a quarterly show bringing the hottest acts in New England to the stage in Central Vermont. Hosted at the beautiful private third floor of De Mena's in downtown Montpelier, Viva Vermont showcases talent, tease and tremendous acts in a delightfully intimate setting. Founded by Bea Trouble — the Missionary of Burlesque — Viva Vermont! Burlesque aims to spread their gospel throughout New England- to all who come!
