The Renovated BTAHS Auditorium

Vital Voices: Arts in Education is in its 15th year of bringing quality theatre programming into the public school system for elementary and high school students. Vital's programming fosters self-confidence, creative independence, and artistic growth by encouraging students to unearth their authentic voices. We teach practical, hands-on skills in the theatrical arts such as playwriting, producing, acting, design (set lighting, costume and sound), musical theatre and commedia. Our in-school, daytime and after-school workshops are led by professional teaching artists and culminate in a final presentation. We are also the founding partner of Brooklyn Theatre Arts High School in Canarsie.

Last year, our 2748 students at nine partner schools wrote 40 plays and performed, directed, designed or worked as crew for 20 productions. We served 129 teaching artists, 111 teachers and 5171 people in combined audience.
