WHAT IS SHERMAN 5?
Sherman 5 is all about breaking down barriers.
It’s about making Sherman Theatre as open and accessible as possible.
Sherman 5 is here to help people to overcome any barriers that are stopping them from coming to our theatre.
Individuals and community groups can apply to join Sherman 5 and become Sherman 5 members. Membership is free.
We want to make it easier for people to come to see shows.
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.
Watch Sarah's Sherman 5 Story below. The Sherman 5 Stories of nine other Sherman 5 members can be seen here.
