We are committed to giving everyone the opportunity to experience the power of theatre.

Whatever your age or background, you should have access to top quality performing arts. This is why we:

  • Provide the best performing arts tuition to our community with the Barn Academy (formerly StageSmart).
  • Make professional theatre accessible by providing free and subsidised tickets for those facing hardship (working with local charity partners).
  • Offer Barn Outreach workshops and short performances for schools – dealing with issues affecting mental health.
  • Inspire young actors, writers and musicians.
  • Award scholarships at Barn Academy for gifted and talented students unable to afford fees (means tested, by application).
  • Support writing and acting talent.
  • Open up theatre to new audiences, encouraging participation for people from all walks of life.

We believe in the power of creativity to make a real difference in lives today. Barn Outreach develops personal growth, self-expression and skills for life.
