Create theater magic this summer with Brooklyn Acting Lab!
BAL’s Young PLAYers Series run weekly from June 22 – September 4, 2020, and are offered at Brooklyn Acting Lab’s BAL location in the heart of Park Slope, Brooklyn.
Our one-week summer programs allow your child to collaborate, create and have an immersive, magical experience. Guided by experienced teaching artists who are both educators and theater professionals, participants will work together to explore a weekly theme. No prior experience is necessary to participate in this supportive and nurturing ensemble experience. We will sing, dance, and use our imaginations to tell stories and create characters. Each week culminates in a Friday afternoon sharing open to family and friends. Sign up for one week or for the entire summer!
BAL is an ensemble-based program. We believe that one of the most exciting aspects of theater-making is working together to create a performance piece which is inclusive and celebrates each and every ensemble-member. At our summer theater programs everyone has a part to PLAY whether you are a veteran to the stage or new to the scene.
Please send your child with a healthy lunch, two snacks, and a bottle of water. We are a nut-free environment so please pack food accordingly.
- Ages: Rising 1st–3rd grades
