About The Theatre Shed

Anything is Possible

The Theatre Shed (formerly Shed@ThePark) Theatre Company, based at Chesham Youth Centre, is all about raising the aspirations of local children and young adults irrespective of their background or ability.

Our vision is to build a sustainable theatre that brings together many more children and adults, from a range of backgrounds, to create wonderfully innovative, inspiring, inclusive theatre.

Many of the young people and adults who walk through our doors have had others closed in their faces because: they are not the 'right' type, they don't have enough money, or they have been labelled with a disability. Labels mean nothing to us. Everyone's welcome - there are no auditions. And everyone's free to express themselves without fear - have some serious fun and make friends at the same time.

Our weekly music, dance and drama workshops bring together young people and adults to explore ideas, discover their abilities, feel more confident, pick up valuable social and communication skills, gain a real sense of responsibility, leadership and citizenship. Many of the young people go on to become volunteers and mentors to our younger childrens' theatre groups, and to pursue further education courses, or careers in the Arts of Childcare.

All our work is 100% original. It comes straight from the young peoples' brilliant and limitless imaginations, supported by our Expert Artistic Team.

Put simply we help all our young people to build their own dreams so that they can truly start to believe that 'Anything is Possible.'

Our Vision

We have big aspirations and dreams. The work that we do is so important and we believe it should be open to even more people. We want to help build a society where everyone can reach their potential.
