At Brooklyn Acting Lab, theatre-making is driven by the dreams, ideas, and inquiries of the youth we work with. We support young learners on their journey of discovery, and stimulate their thinking through interdisciplinary arts-practices.

1 Day Camps | School Breaks

Aligning with the 2019–20 NYC public school calendar, Brooklyn Acting Lab’s School & Holiday Break Programs are designed to inspire students – when they’re off from school – as they design props, costumes, set pieces, choreography and songs or pieces of music.

Private Coaching | Audition Prep

Brooklyn Acting Lab offers private singing lessons, acting coaching, and audition prep. Our team of professional actors and performers will work with students to grow as a performer, build technique, feel confident, and have fun!

Brooklyn Acting Lab Productions

BAL Productions are community affairs, woven from the rich fabric of social, cultural, and environmental factors that are organic to Brooklyn neighborhoods. Buy tickets and learn more about our past and upcoming productions here.
