Who are Chickenshed?
In 1974 Mary Ward and Jo Collins first met and began to pour their energy and vision into this remarkable Company. They started, using an old chicken shed as premises, with a basic belief – that the performing arts should be open to all.

It is that guiding principle which has driven the company forward and enabled it to embrace performers from all backgrounds.

Chickenshed runs Children’s and Youth Theatre workshops for 600 people, education courses for over 100 students, community outreach projects and a network of satellite ‘Sheds’ across the country (and one in Russia) so even more can benefit.

Using unique creative process, the theatre company has created and produced more than 1,000 performances of extraordinary theatre since Chickenshed started in 1974. Full scale productions with casts of 250+ and a 20-strong band. Intimate studio pieces, spotlighting solo performers. Original works devised by the company through workshops. Adaptations of classic plays and stories. Pioneering dance with unique movement. Melodies and lyrics composed by Chickenshed, underpinning it all.
