Vermont Performance Venues Preparing To Reopen

Some performance venues across Vermont are preparing to reopen with help from federal money after the coronavirus pandemic forced them to close.
So far 43 Vermont performance venues benefitted from $13 million in Shuttered Venue Operator Grant program funding, part of federal pandemic relief assistance.

The Vermont Comedy Club received more than $400,000 and plans to reopen Labor Day weekend. Burlington's Flynn Center received more than $1.8 million and plans to open in October.

Natalie Miller, co-owner of Vermont Comedy Club, says the funding came through at the perfect time to hire contractors and start booking talent.
