Mission & Vision

About Brooklyn Children's Theatre
  • Brooklyn Children’s Theatre provides youth with a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment to discover and hone their talents and life skills through the collaborative art of musical theatre.

    • Through the rehearsal process students learn discipline, respect, and the value of hard work and a positive attitude.
    • Through ensemble work, students build a strong community in which they learn commitment, trust and how to depend on one another. 
    • Through live performances, students develop confidence and learn to take risks. 

     

  • We envision a world where all children have access to theatre.

    We especially seek the participation of students who have a gift to give the art of theatre who would not otherwise have theater or performance opportunities, due to economic or cultural barriers or lack of resources in their schools and communities. BCT fulfills an underfunded need in which all students are welcome, regardless of their economic situation. No child has ever been refused for an inability to pay.   

  • We build an inclusive community.

    We aim to create a supportive, dynamic, and inclusive learning community where each child’s individual self-worth, creativity, and talents are celebrated, where each child wants to contribute his or her own unique gifts to strengthen and sustain the vibrancy of this community.
