The aim of The Theatre Shed is to inspire, innovate & include through the medium of Performing Arts. Our workshops are professionally led and allow our young people to explore performance skills such as acting, singing, dancing, physical theatre and more in a supportive environment. We do not have an audition process, which we believe creates a more accessible pathway for all young people to engage in Performing Arts. The workshops are member lead and can be skills based, or focussed on working towards a production which the members are involved in creating from the very start.
The children & young adults are encouraged & supported by their mentors to come up with & develop their ideas with the freedom of self-expression. The Theatre Shed works with young people of all abilities, irrespective of background, ability, disability or difficulty, producing excellent, thought provoking challenging and, above all, entertaining theatre.
The inclusive Theatre workshops are held in the Spinney Theatre at the Beacon School (5 Amersham Road, Chesham Bois, HP6 5PF) once a week.
