The Renovated BTAHS Auditorium

Vital Voices: Arts in Education is in its 16th year of bringing quality theatre programming into the public school system for K-12 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 1667 students at eight partner schools and 7 Vital Performance Camps wrote 51 original plays and performed, directed, designed or worked as crew for 17 productions. We served 249 teaching artists, 268 teachers and 6651 people in combined audience.
