Founded in Kilkenny in 1991, Barnstorm Theatre Company creates and presents high-standard, professional theatre for children and young people. It is also a resource organisation, using theatre & drama as a participative, personal development process for youth and local community groups, through its Youth Theatre, Adult Theatre Club and a community, schools and youth Outreach programme.
The Barn is Barnstorm's own 80-seater black box venue. It is the home venue for our professional theatre for children aged 4-7; for the Adult Theatre Clubs and the Youth Theatre. The Barn features annually as a Kilkenny Arts Festival venue. Barnstorm's plays for children aged 8+ are performed in the nearby Watergate Theatre.
