No merch. No screens.
Just powerful, live experiences.
Welcome to Monkey Baa!

A not-for-profit charity, we transform young peoples’ lives through our education programs and professional theatrical performances. For 22 years, we’ve made it our mission to take the power of theatre to the young people who need it most: those living in regional and remote Australia and in disadvantaged, urban communities.

Monkey Baa Theatre Company is a theatre company for all children.

Your donation will help us ensure all young people can enjoy our performances, no matter their abilities. At home in our venue the ARA Darling Quarter Theatre, we embrace a multi-disability perspective and our programming caters for patrons with physical, sensory, intellectual, psychiatric, cognitive and learning difficulties. We are already industry leaders, but we want to do more.

Please support Monkey Baa to provide access to more young people than ever before by offering Auslan Interpretation, Social Stories for young people on the Autism spectrum and Relaxed Performances for those with sensory and learning challenges. Our venue needs better facilities for the hearing impaired as well as braille and way-finding support.

One in ten young people live with some form of disability. Under the UN convention, every child has the right to access theatre and cultural experiences and their local theatre is theirs as much as any adult. Further, “children who have any kind of disability have the right to special care and support, as well as all the rights in the Convention, so that they can live full and independent lives.”
