Welcome to Chickenshed NYC Donate to Chickenshed NYC Children’s Theater Experience the magic of Chickenshed Inclusive Theatre workshops for ages 6-13. 2019 workshops begin September 14th, where children will explore themes that interest them through storytelling, dance and music. Our specially trained teaching artists will guide their creativity and foster resilience, patience, strength and acceptance as they collaborate each week. The final performance grows organically from the ideas and abilities of the children into something unique and unforgettable. We believe that every person who joins our community positively changes the way that we work. We discover every individual’s strengths, providing the creative environment that will enable them to flourish. The children cultivate a theater family of peers with different backgrounds, abilities, and talents, and begin to see that when everyone has the power to contribute, the end result is beyond what they could create otherwise.
