Sherman 5

WHAT IS SHERMAN 5?

CollageWeb1 

Sherman 5 is all about breaking down barriers.

It’s about making Sherman Theatre as open and accessible as possible, and helping people to overcome any personal or practical barriers that are stopping them from coming to our theatre. We want to make it easier for people to come to see performances including family shows, drama, dance and comedy.

We work closely with individuals and groups from the following communities:

  • Asylum Seekers and Refugees - See our Theatre of Sanctuary page.
  • Older People
  • D/deaf people
  • Visually Impaired people

Individuals and community groups can apply to become Sherman 5 members. Membership is free and offers lots of great benefits.

We also want to give Sherman 5 members the chance to get involved in the life and work of Sherman Theatre in many other ways, including as volunteers.
