Mission Statement

The Brookfield Theatre for the Arts, Inc. is an all volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing quality live performances and creative opportunities, rooted in cultural equity*, to the Brookfield region. The regular season of shows is 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. The Spotlight Program is a low-cost learning experience for young performers ages 8 to 15. It includes free mentorships for student directors and tuition assistance as needed. Along with live & virtual performances, Brookfield Theatre offers a gallery space for area artists to show their work and provide more depth to the cultural experience. We finish the year with our annual Paddy Awards to honor and thank volunteers!

*Cultural equity embodies the values, policies, and practices that ensure that all people—including but not limited to those who have been historically, and continue to be, underrepresented based on race/ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, socioeconomic status, geography, citizenship status, or religion—are represented in the development of arts policy; the support of artists; the nurturing of accessible, thriving venues for expression; and the fair distribution of programmatic, financial, and informational resources. While intersectionality is real and crucial to providing entry for people at various stages of readiness, we acknowledge that racial inequity is central to most societal issues, particularly when it comes to the distribution of resources.

About Miss Beth's Spotlight

Spotlight is a theatre program for youth ages 7 to 17 led by Beth Bonnabeau. The teen program is designed for high school and college students. It is underwritten by Brookfield Theatre to keep costs low and to make theatre education accessible to all.

Beth has been a childrens theatre educator/director since the early 90's. She received her BA in Theatre in 1989 from SUNY Plattsburgh where she served as President of Alpha Psi Omega, a National Theatre Honors Fraternity, and Vice President of the College Theatre Association. Beth discovered her passion for childrens theatre early. She taught and directed at many local theatres, schools and dance studios and is thrilled to be bringing her very specific skill set to Brookfield Theatre. Beth is known for creating safe spaces for children to express themselves and discover the joys of being part of a family of actors . . . a "no judgement zone" where young people are free to stretch their imaginations and creativity to the max!
