Birmingham Repertory Theatre and Warwick Business School have joined forces to research the impact of theatre on children. The study will draw its research from the Birmingham Repertory Theatre’s project REP’s Children, which offers a free theatre experience to all babies born in City and Heartlands hospitals every year for the first 10 years of their lives.

This project begins in October of this year, where newborns and their families will have the opportunity to see the theatre’s new production of Open House for free. In order to uncover the impact theatre has on children, Birmingham has employed Warwick Business School Professor Jonathan Neelands to research the effects of the REP’s program.
