Brooklyn Children’s Theatre is an after school musical theatre program for children in 1st-12th grades. We offer performance driven classes where children are cast in and rehearse a musical play. We believe that many skills are gained from learning theatre for performance. Not only are children learning skills in acting, singing, and dancing; but they are also learning life lessons such as teamwork, punctuality, accountability, and risk-taking. Over the course of a session, we see children become more confident, try new things, and make huge leaps in the development of their talents.

Our plays are structured to feature each child to the best of their ability. We choose material and create pieces where each child gets their own moment to shine. The shiest of kids gets a chance to come into their own as a performer, and the most confident of kids learns to share the stage with their peers.

At BCT, we also believe that theatre should be for ALL children, not just for those who can afford it. Our scholarship program currently sustains 25% of our students. We will never turn a child away from BCT for an inability to pay.

The end of session performance gives the children a chance to perform for their community. They invite teachers, classmates, loved ones, and friends. The electricity in the air from their live show stays with them for months to come and makes them feel special in a way that only theatre can.
