Park Slope's Brooklyn Family Theater is Closing

Park Slope's Brooklyn Family Theater is closing after seven years. We got an email last night passing along the news. Here's what it said in part:
With a great sense of accomplishment and heavy hearts, Brooklyn Family Theatre's Board of Directors is announcing that after producing over twenty plays and musicals in Park Slope, the theatre will be closing up shop for good after seven wonderful years, on Saturday, March 15, 2008.

As the group and its members have grown a few years older, some pretty wonderful things have happened, including marriages, moves to new homes outside the area, and further career successes. With these new developments, the group's Board and pool of Staff Members have found that keeping the musicals and plays coming has proven too much to keep up with...

On Saturday, March 15, the BFT family will be together one last time, to celebrate the past seven seasons. The staff has planned a "BFT Farewell Event" (hosted by comic and Board Member Jenn Palumbo) that will include performances from alumni, personal remembrances, a great deal of fun, and even a fifteen-minute "clips" film celebrating the past seven years (with images and music from all the BFT shows).
The "Farewell Event" is on March 15 at 7PM. General admission is $10 and reservations are "strongly recommended." Brooklyn Family Theatre is located at The Church of Gethsemane, 1012 8th Avenue in Park Slope. For more information click here.
