Brooklyn Children's Theatre


Brooklyn Children’s Theatre brings together children from diverse backgrounds to learn and grow through the collaborative art of musical theatre. We offer year-round technique and production classes, giving kids a balanced load of theory and practical skills. Our technique classes range from performance focus (acting, singing, and dance) to technical theatre skills including costume and set design. Our production classes lead students through the entire production process, from audition to final performance. We also offer one-day workshops during school breaks and other holidays. We produce 38 musicals on a yearly basis. At BCT, we envision a world where all children have access to theatre. No child has ever been refused for an inability to pay.

  • ISO an after school theater program for middle school kid

    If you're looking for a theatre program that brings youth from diverse backgrounds together, then Brooklyn Children's Theatre is the perfect place. My daughter (who is entering 8th grade) has been going since 1st grade, and has also done an internship there. They are on President Street between 3rd and 4th Avenue.
  • Fall theater program

    I highly recommend Brooklyn Children’s Theater: The teen program is audition-based. It’s always geared towards performance of a musical. Recent examples include: Frozen Jr, Newsies Jr, Into The Woods Jr. They have a relationship with Disney so they often get to pilot their junior shows. Best of all is that it’s such a lovely group of kids - incredibly welcoming and supportive. My kid has benefited both socially and technically. It’s not particularly geared to aspiring professionals but their prep classes for middle and high school auditions are quite popular (and helpful). It is expensive but only because they provide a lot of free scholarships for kids in shelters to their programs. They have some flexibility on fees.
  • tween/teen theater day camp recs?

    Brooklyn Childrens Theater is a great day camp and after school program. the shows are by audition only but they are super high quality. Shows for younger kids are more like a regular camp where you sign up and everyone gets a role.
