Ireland’s leading producer of professional theatre for children and young people has built up a strong reputation for high quality, innovative styles of theatre. Based in Kilkenny, Barnstorm tours its professional productions all over Ireland, as well as playing locally in both the Watergate Theatre and its own theatre venue, The Barn.
Barnstorm also runs a vibrant Outreach and Education programme providing access and training in theatre/drama to communities and individuals across Kilkenny City and County. This is a flexible programme that invites individuals, organisations and communities to discuss the possibility of realising theatre, arts and drama projects with us.
