Children

​Chickenshed Players 1 (ages 5-7)

At Chickenshed NYC we explore all aspects of theatre in these sessions through play, giving our children the opportunity to develop without the pressure of a public performance, which is why they don’t take part in our main house productions until they transition into Chickenshed Player 2. The only public performances our CP1s take part in are for their parents and carers at various opportunities throughout the year!

We use the familiarity of music and puppetry from Tales from The Shed to explore the performance space in areas such as: singing; dancing; storytelling and ASL. All of our activities are designed to encourage creativity and help build their confidence as they grow and develop.

​Chickenshed Players 2 (ages 7-10)

Chickenshed Player 2 sessions are designed to empower everyone to contribute their ideas and gifts regardless of circumstance or background. Our philosophy fosters inclusion, compassion and kindness, out of which emerges the kind of vibrant and unforgettable experience that can only come from the transformative power of theatre.

Our theme for the Winter and Spring semester programs is “How to Make A Better World,”’ based on the book of the same name by Artistic Ambassador Keilly Swift. Each week, our Players come together and take part in fun, participatory and creative sessions led by experienced Teaching Artists. Cocooned within this nurturing and safe environment, the children begin their journey of inclusive theatre-making through activities involving storytelling, movement, music and American Sign Language (ASL). Our high Teaching Artist-to-student ratio allows for us to facilitate small group projects while establishing the foundations for strong relationships within our theatrical community. Each semester culminates with a sharing of our work, giving all the Players a chance to take part in a theatrical experience - be it online or in-person when conditions allow.
