BROOKLYN THEATRE
 

Brooklyn Theatre integrates separate endeavours to facilitate and realise our dream of ‘Art inspired Music made Accessible’.

 

“We turned the sound off, became still. Tried to contemplate a world without beautiful music. People without beautiful music. And could not. Would not.” “So we imagined a theatre to which we may transport anyone. Anyone, and one day everyone, in the whole wide world- as long as they would be connected with beautiful music.”

“Brooklyn Theatre’s voice sings to you from the most beautiful country, South Africa. We thrive on innovation and then present you with imaginative ways to access the art of music. “Journey with us through our theatre to discover how we long to reach you.
