I've learned that people will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Be You Inc is a charity focussed around education and empowerment in the music theatre space. The sole purpose of the organisation is to make ourselves obsolete, by creating universal standards that work towards a music theatre industry that is inclusive, representative of the diversity of our context, and centres these diverse stories as the core of music theatre.
We believe the narrative is key to the story and our emotional connection, not the presentation.
Key to this, we are focused around addressing the inequities of the music theatre industry through the redistribution of power, disruption of unchallenged norms, and actively holding space for marginalised and emerging performers.
At the heart of what we do are our values: Be Balanced, and You Belong.
We use best practices from across industries to help create a more robust music theatre space and set standards for teamwork and professionalism in an otherwise unregulated industry. Be You Inc. runs educational workshops and courses to empower young performers with technical and non-technical skills, fosters new works and creates spaces for performers by putting on full-scale professional productions.
