Summer Theater Programs

Spend your summer performing, creating, imagining and having fun at Brooklyn Acting Lab! BAL offers immersive summer acting programs and theater camps for Early Childhood, Elementary School, Middle School and High School students.

After-School Classes

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.
