In this effort, we have 156 kids in need of scholarships this season. 56 scholarships will go to children living in family shelters as part of our OASIS program.
Thank you for making dreams come true

According to a recent survey, 100% of our OASIS students have made significant gains in positive identity, enabling them to feel empowered, have higher confidence, and develop resiliency as they face challenges.
A BCT scholarship provides a child an opportunity that they would not normally have. Our scholarship recipients are part of an ensemble of children performing in a musical theatre production. Not only do they develop skills in acting and singing, but they become more confident, learn how to take risks, overcome challenges, and learn how to work as a team. They become part of a theatrical family.
Thank you for considering a donation to BCT and for giving low-income children an opportunity to learn and grow in a caring, artistic community.
Brooklyn Children’s Theatre (BCT) is an after school musical theatre program, serving over 1000 children in Brooklyn.
We believe that theatre should be for all children, not just for those that can afford it.
Original musicals are written by professional artists to cater to the needs of every child, ensuring a fulfilling experience where all of our kids can grow as artists and as people.
This year, we are producing 32 musical productions that will be seen by 7,000 audience members.
So far this season, 56 scholarships are going to children living in family shelters. Another 100 scholarships are going to low-income children, enabling all of our children to work together and grow through their experience of acting in a musical theatre production.
