  • Mission statement

    Our vision is a society that enables everyone to flourish and our mission is to create entertaining and outstanding theatre that celebrates diversity and inspires positive change.

    We bring together children and young people from every walk of life – with a range of abilities, perspectives and personal experiences – to learn, share values, challenge labels and exceed expectations through an ethos of inclusivity, where everyone supports each other, in order to discover each individual’s true potential. Everyone is welcome at Chickenshed, and everyone is given the support they need to progress and achieve. We break down the barriers people may face in their lives, whether they are physical, intellectual, emotional, social, cultural, or financial, and, through the performing arts, we help young people to discover the best version of themselves, and become a positive force in our society.
