I am trying to connect my new sound bar to an Optoma GT5600 Ultra Short throw projector that does not have HDMI Arc or Optical Audio Out, only HDMI and AUX Audio output. Is there another way to connect audio or is there an adapter I could use or will I need to purchase a receiver?

This is why soundbars like this are generally not recommended for projectors. There are still a fair few that don't have the right outputs, and because they have limited inputs you would go with something like a lifestyle that has all the inputs direct to the console and would only output video to the projector.
What you need in this case would be an analogue to digital converter (3.5mm to optical/HDMI). If you serach for that you should find a couple, but be weary as most will be going the other way (digital to analogue HDMI to 3.5mm).
