The 3rd Annual BIG GREEN THEATER Festival
BIG GREEN THEATER (BGT) is an annual eco-playwriting program and green theater festival celebrating environmental education, sustainability in the arts, and community enrichment. Original plays written by Bushwick's PS123 5th grade students are performed by a professional ensemble using only green theater methods. Enjoyable for all ages!
Our Sat. and Sun. 4pm matinees are free! Walk-ins are accepted, but we do encourage you to make a reservation in advance as seating is limited.
Our Saturday evening show at 7pm is a Special Benefit Performance to support the growth of our annual BGT program. Your $12 ticket will include the performance, as well as a reception to follow with refreshments and music.
