About Us

Our Mission:

At Treasure Trunk Theatre, we create a nurturing space for children to develop their imagination, confidence, and creativity through the magic of storytelling. We encourage self-expression and celebrate individuality. We use the power of dramatic play to inspire each child to be their unique self, to connect with others, and to see the world in an empathic way.

Act, move, create, and play – where will your imagination take you today?  Treasure Trunk Theatre is a theatrical arts program for children that explores drama through imagination. In each class the students will incorporate movement, music, theatre games, and visual arts to express themselves and connect with the world around them. Here at Treasure Trunk, we pride ourselves on being a company that focuses on the journey – it is not about the final product, but rather what your child will learn through the process. We aim to provide a nurturing environment for children to develop and expand their creative energies. 

In 2013, our founder and CEO, Elisa Pupko had a dream of bringing her unique theatrical curriculum to the kiddos of Brooklyn and beyond. We are so proud to say that Treasure Trunk has now expanded to neighborhoods in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and New Jersey. Our flagship location, located on Atlantic Avenue, hosts all your beloved Treasure Trunk classes and camps, full package birthday parties and special events. We also host some amazing other providers with their top-notch programs, check them out: Artists & Crafts, Hopalong Andrew, Lavender Blues, MAPS, and Mozart for Munchkins.

Come join us for a drop in class, a week long camp, or a full semester! We look forward to seeing you soon!
