Chickenshed Theatre

Chickenshed Theatre works with children, youth and adults from diverse backgrounds, delivering programmes that inspire accessible participation in, and lifelong appreciation for, the performing arts.

Founded 1974

  • Mission statement

    Since 1974, Chickenshed has modelled its unique inclusive theatre approach to reach individuals and groups who are often excluded from communities and are less likely to have access to our pioneering work. These people are often disqualified from mainstream settings because of their educational background, financial or social disposition, race or disability.

  • Aims

    Chickenshed Theatre aims to:

    • create extraordinary, challenging, dynamic, groundbreaking, moving, genuinely inclusive, beautiful theatre.
    • use the performing arts as a vehicle to tackle social issues and create a more tolerant society.
    • help individuals who find themselves excluded by society appreciate and participate in the performing arts.
    • provide opportunities for higher education for young people who would otherwise be excluded from mainstream educational settings.
    • show that life is not about what you cannot do - it's about what you can do.
