ChickenshedThe Chickenshed Theatre was founded more than 30 years ago in (you guessed it) a disused chicken shed. Since then, the creative team behind the theatre have unleashed over 100 scripts, recorded over 20 original CDs and finally moved to a permanent, 300 seat theatre in North London. The space also includes a studio theatre, dance studio, fully-equipped recording studio and an open air amphitheatre. The Chickenshed's unique inclusive methods, use dramatisation as a medium to involve children and encourage participation. Chickenshed runs children's and youth theatre workshops, education courses, community outreach projects and a network of satellite 'Sheds' across the country (there's even one in Russia). Since starting in 1974 the company has created and produced more than 1,000 performances ranging from full-scale productions with casts of 250 and more to intimate studio and solo pieces. They've performed at The Royal Albert Hall, Sadler's Wells, the Lyceum Theatre and on television for the BBC as well as at The Queen Mother's 100th birthday.
