The Chicken Shed is an inclusive theatre company in which individuals from all backgrounds and of all abilities can work together to the common end of high quality performance in drama, music and dance. It runs children’s and youth theatre workshops, education courses, community outreach projects and a network of satellite ‘Sheds’ across the country.
We regularly perform for children with emotional or behavioural problems, learning difficulties (moderate and severe), the physically handicapped and those with hearing or sight problems.
Our youth theatre work aimed at 13-25 year old people with a visual impairment, who are interested in drama and performance.
Classes allow members the opportunity to work together in exercises, improvisation and creative dance. The Company integrates performers of all ages with learning difficulties, physical disabilities and sensory impairment with able-bodied dancers, actors and musicians.
The Total Arts creative learning group is for young people aged 11-19 with disabilities. They offer regular Saturday workshops featuring dance, drama, music making, film production and story devising leading to productions.
An audio description service for people with a visual impairment. The service provides audio description in theatres, museums, galleries and heritage sites. It also provides training in description and consultancy for theatres, museums, galleries and heritage sites wishing to make their service accessible through description.
