Drama Club is an organization that provides theatre programming to incarcerated and court-involved young people. We are a mobile drama club, bringing our classes into juvenile detention centers, jails and community centers throughout the city. It started as a rehearsal process of a play at Crossroads Juvenile Center, which was presented as a staged reading for staff, fellow residents and family members. The success of this project blossomed into a consistent year-round program.  

Currently, Drama Club works with approximately 500 individual students between the ages of 10-21, developing theatre is offered at five different sites, across three boroughs:

  • Crossroads Juvenile Center in Brooklyn
