The Brookfield Theatre for the Arts is an all volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing quality live performances and educational opportunities to the Brookfield region. Our regular season consists of four community theater shows and two Spotlight student shows chosen to provide a meaningful and entertaining experience that will appeal to a wide ranging audience. Additional workshops and special events are added throughout the year to provide more diverse offerings and creative opportunities. The Spotlight Program is a free learning experience for young performers ages 8 to 15. It is student run & led with adult mentors. Along with live performances, Brookfield Theatre offers a gallery space for area artists to show their work and provide more depth to the cultural experience of theater-goers. We finish each year with our annual Paddy Awards to thank sponsors, performers, and volunteers—and to celebrate!
The best value in live community theater!
