Muslim Voices

  • This summer, BCT had a great time performing our four Muslim Voices shows at

    The Children’s Museum of Manhattan!

    Check out the video for a recap of this amazing project! We’re so grateful that our partnership with the CMOM allowed us to share these shows again!

  • Funded by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art

    In 2016, Brooklyn Children’s Theatre was one of eight organizations nationwide to receive a grant from the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art.
  • As part of the grant, we created four original musicals for children with Muslim protagonists.

    Two musicals were written by teams of Muslim and non-Muslim musical theatre writers. The other two musicals were written in our summer 2016 playwriting classes, comprised of Muslim and non-Muslim students and teaching artists.
  • All of the musicals were performed by 3rd-6th graders in our 2016-2017 season.

    In the fall of 2017, they will be licensed to children’s theatre companies around North America.
