Brookhaven Drama

Instruction

Theatre Brookhaven is primarily an instructional entity within Brookhaven College. We teach a variety of courses—including theatre appreciation, acting, stagecraft, film appreciation, makeup, etc. Our students are comprised of those who simply wish to complete the Arts/Humanities Core Course requirements, those who want to make theatre their career, those who want to explore all aspects of the theatre and those who want to give their lives to it.

Theatres

Theatre Brookhaven is fortunate to have two performance spaces - the Performance Hall, which is a traditional proscenium stage with a capacity of 657 seats plus eight wheelchairs spaces with eight companion spaces. The hall also includes the Arena Theatre, which is actually a flexible, intimate black box space that can accommodate almost any configuration of stage and seating.

Performances

Theatre Brookhaven offers ample opportunity for students and all interested parties to act. We generally do five shows per school year - two in the Fall semester, two in the Spring and a musical in the Summer.

Fare

Theatre Brookhaven is interested in producing a variety of pieces, from the very "edgy" to classical and traditional.
