bare follows a group of students at a Catholic boarding school as they grapple with issues of sexuality, identity, and the future.

Directed by Hannah Barn, co – choreographed by Hannah Barn and Alexandra Lewtas and musically directed by Matthew Reid, the show is set to take audiences on an emotional musical journey.

“It [bare] is a very cathartic theatre experience,” director Hannah Barn says, “I first found the soundtrack in 2010 and have been deeply invested ever since.”

Barn also states that,“bare is a story of today; it’s about the emotional turmoil amidst discovering ourselves, the rawness of love in all its forms, and as American director Scott Miller writes, it is about “the breakdown of our institutions – religion, education, family – and the resulting moral hypocrisy that traps many of us behind the masks of conformity. However, despite these heavy truths, this is a story of true, honest and real love.”

bare rings with the sounds of youthful repression and revolt. With a unique sung-through pop score, heart-pounding lyrics, and a cast of bright young characters; bare is a provocative, fresh, and utterly honest look at the dangers of baring your soul, and the consequences of hiding.
