​Chickenshed Players 1 (ages 5-7)

Our youngest Chickenshed Players have fun with theatrical games, singing, dancing, puppetry, storytelling, and basic American Sign Language, under the guidance and support of professional Teaching Artists. Our activities focus on encouraging creativity and building confidence as children begin to explore the performing space around them.

The children use their imaginations to delve into all aspects of theatre through playful activities.

This program is the bridge from Adventures from The Shed to Chickenshed Players 2 and as such the children will only perform in front of their families and carers, allowing them to prepare for a wider audience when they move up to the next level.

​Chickenshed Players 2 (ages 7-10)

Children of all abilities and backgrounds take part in creating and devising a musical adaptation of the book The Tigon and the Liger to be performed in 14Y Theater. Through theatrical games and creative activities Players help format the characters’ journey, add their ideas to movement and choreography as well learn new songs and some ASL (American Sign Language).

This new adaptation centers on the natural world and we have guest scientists to workshop on a range of related themes such as habitat and endangered species. In addition the children take a trip to the Museum of Natural History as part of their creative journey while developing their characters.

Our methodology fosters inclusion, compassion and kindness and encourages Players to contribute their ideas and creativity--out of which emerges a unique and vibrant theatrical experience. A high Teaching Artist-to-student ratio allows us to facilitate small group projects and establishes the foundations for strong relationships within our theatrical community.
