Berkeley Carroll School

Marlene Clary Performance Space

The Berkeley Carroll School performing arts center — located on the northern ridge of Park Slope in — was formerly a church. Originally built in 1936, the structure has been transformed into a flexible theater and performance space.

The 80-year-old former church can now provide the school with seating for 396 through a staggered seating arrangement that uses space freed up by the removal of the existing raised stage. Subsequently, the space can be reconfigured to serve as a lecture hall or venue for music, theater, events, and multi-media audio-visual performances.

Berkeley Carroll is an independent, college preparatory day school providing coeducational programs for children in prekindergarten through grade 12. Officially chartered by New York state in 1886, Berkeley Carroll is one of the oldest independent schools in New York City.
