Chickenshed is the only theatre in the country to offer higher education training in Inclusive Performance. Inclusion has always been fundamental to our work and as theatres are called upon to demonstrate greater levels of diversity, we are proud to be training the next generation of theatre makers in our unique, inclusive approach.
We offer two undergraduate courses as part of our higher education programme. In studying with us, you will actively contribute to our creative output from in-house performance to issue-based theatre in the community. Here at Chickenshed, we know that theatre has the power to change lives. You can be a part of that change.
Chickenshed is committed to delivering the highest quality education for our students which is why we follow Quality Assurance process.
