Monkey Baa Theatre for Young People

Help us reach more young people!


Please help us reach young Australians with exceptional theatre and education.

“The overall increase in communication skills and confidence amongst our students is due to the incredible efforts brought from those at Monkey Baa. While these outcomes are desirable for all children, in a multicultural and low socioeconomic community such as ours, these are essential.” Felicity Bonello, Principal, Bankstown West Public School

I’ve been a part of the Monkey Baa family for many years now, in the last six months as Executive Director.   Working closely with our amazing team, it has been my privilege to experience first hand the difference Monkey Baa makes in the lives of young Australians across Australia.

Monkey Baa is Australia’s widest reaching touring theatre company

In 2017, 60% of the 55,000 young Australians that saw Diary of a Wombat were located in regional and remote communities and 20,466 young people were in the poorest third of Australians by socio-economic status.

That doesn’t include our industry leading Education Program, which is delivered free of charge. 

And that’s why we need your help.

We believe that all young people deserve to experience theatre and education programs in a manner that informs, reflects and treats them as equals, regardless of their location, ethnicity or economic circumstances.

We know our Education Program makes a difference.  Through our teacher led, curated and curriculum-linked Arts-based educational workshops, we delivered 230 workshops to almost 7,000 students across Australia.

In fact, the more remote or lower the socio-economic status of a school or young Australian, the more likely they are to attend our workshops. In 2017:

70% or 4,653 students were in regional and remote communities.
Almost half of all our students are in the poorest third of Australians by socio-economic status. 
A staggering 2,267 of those are in the poorest 20%.
Monkey Baa works closely with presenters in low socio-economic and regional and remote communities to ensure their schools and students are able to participate in our face to face workshops.   Teachers are also provided with our curated Teacher Resources to ensure maximum benefit for their students.

As a registered charity, delivering on our commitment to young Australians is a constant challenge. 

This tax time, please donate to Monkey Baa so that we can continue to reach young people across metropolitan, regional and remote Australia.  All donations to Monkey Baa are tax deductible.

Thank you!
