rates are contingent upon the type of show or meeting that is contemplated, but whatever
the event, large or small, our full staff of highly skilled professionals will help
your performance from the drawing board to full realization and at extremely competitive
prices. The Center has been praised by many producers (most of whom return year
after year) as one of the friendliest, most helpful of any venue in which to produce a show.
Brooklyn Center is proud of its long tradition of involvement with the Brooklyn
Community by way of offering the magnificent Walt Whitman Theatre for
rental at very attractive rates, making it the ideal gathering and performance space for
small community, civic and cultural groups, as well as those desiring the full
scope of a professional production crew and a fully-equipped theatrical venue.
Over the years the Center has been a
home to a variety of community events from neighborhood dance school recitals to the NYC
Police Academy ceremonies to Church Gospel Choral performances, as well
as the many local producers who wish to bring performers of the highest caliber
to Brooklynites. Almost anything that can be presented to an audience can
be mounted on our stage. In fact, among one of the most joyous events
held on the Whitman Stage was a full wedding ceremony and reception.
Every June Brooklyn Center
It has been a tradition here for decades. A majority of
our Brooklyn high schools and colleges, Fire and Police
Department Academies take advantage of the large seating
capacity of the Whitman Theatre for their commencement
exercises. Literally hundreds of thousands of Brooklynites
are indelibly linked to the Center because one of the most
important milestones in their lives, their graduation, took
place in our great hall.
