About Us

Using high quality performance and performing arts tuition, Open the Door Theatre in Education exists to positively affect young people’s lives, delivering clear messages and instilling motivation.

All of their staff members are dedicated and diligent people whose primary vocation is to Theatre in Education.

They truly care for the young people with whom they work with.  Their main aim is to improve their quality of life.

Throughout our nine years of operation the data collected from the participating young people has confirmed that they are making a constructive difference; whether through educating young people about racism, the dangers of crime or by helping them overcome shyness and build confidence with our arts facilitation.

They perform thought-provoking plays and facilitate issue based performing arts projects in approximately five hundred schools and youth clubs per year – reaching more than one hundred and twenty thousand young people.
