Autumn is Coming! Autumn is Coming! The weather isn’t cooling off and neither are we! In fact things are just hotting up here at Chickenshed as we prepare for a spectacular Autumn Season! A fearless and innovative new production of Jekyll and Hyde kicks off our season in the Studio Theatre. Exploring the duality of human nature, this utterly iconic story will be boldly told with music, movement and youthful vigour that honours the breathless pace of the original novella - and this isn't the only well-loved story we'll be adapting for the stage this year. Chickenshed also proudly presents A Christmas Carol in a newly imagined and fresh way. We will be moving the story out of its Victorian origins and into London's East End in the 1930s, which will provide us with some wonderful performance opportunities that characterise the Chickenshed Christmas Show magic. Our Children's programme also continues to believe in the magic as it enters its busiest season, with over a hundred performances of Tales from the Shed, Planet Play and Christmas Tales between September and January. As if all of our incredible performances weren't enough, we also have some very special events lined up. This September we are welcoming the human inside your favourite droid, C-3PO. That's right, the brilliant Anthony Daniels will be joining us in conversation at Chickenshed and we cannot contain our excitement. Star Wars attire is encouraged. We will also be joined by one of the world's greatest and best-loved actors Sir Derek Jacobi who, on the set of Chickenshed's A Christmas Carol will look back on his career and share some seasonal readings. Finally, we are thrilled to announce that Jamie Raven, who took the entertainment world by storm during 2015 Britain's Got Talent, will be creating a very special performance especially for Chickenshed entitled We Are Magic! And if all of THAT wasn't enough, we also have a whole season's worth of comedy, live music and workshops! So get yourself down to Chickenshed this autumn for an absolutely extraordinary time. We can't wait to see you!
