On Stage At Kingsborough brings artistically and culturally diverse, multi-disciplinary performances from masters of the form to the varied communities within and surrounding the college. We strive to create an environment where the arts are an accessible and integral part of life, and the Arts Center is a community gathering place for interaction and inspiration. We offer performances in theatre, dance, literature, and music, as well as family shows. Our schooltime shows welcome classes from local public and private schools, a majority of which serves economically-disadvantaged or special needs populations. The 2012-2013 season reflects our commitment to present world-class artists in music, dance, theatre, and family shows in exclusive Brooklyn engagements. The season of classic and classical performing arts offers performances by companies who set the standard in their field at prices that are a fraction of what audiences would pay elsewhere.
