Community. Creativity. Family.

Dress Up Jam

A freewheeling, grassroots participatory platform that's all about expressing your theatrical spirit - because theatre can be in tents!

The Dress Up Jam marquee is an open, street-level performance space, where the friendly attendants invite passers-by to to dress up, act up and wig out, or just... whatever!

I think the Barbarian Production Company are creative freedom fighters... they have fostered a community attitude in me, and that’s one carriage of the Freedom Train. Good on you Barbarian Productions.
