Royal Jelly
(A World Premiere)
written and directed
by Paul Cameron Hardy
Fri Mar 24 - Wed Mar 29
Royal Jelly (Brooklyn College 2017)

In any old field, by any old highway, any old thing
can happen: cops can harass citizens into
feeding them candy; bees can complain about
their workload; an earnest ecoterrorist can
spread magical wildflower seeds; the universe
can be explored and explained; and dogs can
enjoy just being dogs. Mischievously mixing
elements of magical realism, stand-up comedy
gags, and gut-busting vaudevillian humor, Hardy
spins an essential story about how absurd and
precarious life can be when — on the brink of
ecological disaster — we just go merrily along.



The Brooklyn College Department of Theater produces seven to ten shows a year — up to four Mainstage productions in the proscenium-style Whitman Theater and up to six "black box" productions in the 120-seat New Workshop Theater — directed by faculty and MFA directing candidates.

These shows provide undergraduate and graduate students plenty of hands-on experience in all phases of theatrical production.

This production activity also provides cultural enrichment for the community, which has shown great appreciation and support for departmental productions.

For information and reservations, call 718-951-4500.

In 2012, Brooklyn College broke ground to build the new Tow Center for the Performing Arts, a state of the art theater facility housing the Brooklyn Center for the Performing Arts, the Music Department, and the Theater Department.
