What’s Happening at BAL

BAL 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.


BAL’s 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.

“Play in a Day” – School Break Programs

When NYC schools are closed, our doors are open! BAL’s “Play in a Day” program includes daily-changing themes, story-sharing, games, art, and music. Early drop-off and late pick-up are available.
