Tim McGarry is a founding member of Monkey Baa Theatre for Young People, established in 1997, along with Sandra Eldridge and Eva Di Cesare. Based in Sydney, the company has achieved critical acclaim for its work and today enjoys a national reputation for producing quality theatre programs for young people, their families and theatre goers. Each year Monkey Baa tours its work throughout metropolitan, rural and regional Australia. Australian stories adapted from established literature from well-profiled authors are presented with high production values. Monkey Baa’s relationship with its audience is distinctive and many young people (including some from isolated areas) have the advantage of sharing the skills of Monkey Baa’s creative team in comprehensive and inventive workshop programs.
Monkey Baa’s Mission is to produce high quality theatre programs for young people, their families, teachers and communities throughout Australia and internationally. The company’s Vision is to be recognised nationally and internationally as a leader in the creation of meaningful and innovative theatre for young people, and to engage young audiences through the telling of Australian stories that entertain, inspire and encourage a greater understanding of the world and their place in it.
