Open Minds Theatre Company (OMTC), since being founded in 2003 by Steve Rogers and Katherine Fletcher, has developed into a significant arts organisation delivering workshops, performance and arts projects across a wide variety of art forms.

We are passionate about the transformative power of the arts and are firmly committed to the impact that the arts can have upon the regeneration of the region. Whilst OMTC is firmly embedded in the Rotherham community, we work, predominantly, throughout the North of England

We work in the community to assist in the developing and equipping of people to lead effective and fulfilled lives by improving their confidence, self-esteem, understanding of others and themselves, communication skills and self-discipline through their exposure to, and involvement in, the arts.

We also work with different groups of disadvantaged people in the community and we are committed to using performance drama and other art forms as a means of opening peoples’ minds and combating bigotry and prejudice.
