March Spotlight - Chicken Shed Theatre Company - Sharing Stages

Spotlight - March 
ChickenShed Theatre company 

Welcome to this months Spotlight blog featuring the incredible Chicken Shed Theatre company




I was lucky to attend the press night for their new show Chasing Stages on March 4th
The show is currently running between March 3rd to March 20th. Each week of the shows will include different scenes each week.


For those who haven't visited the theatre it's one you should add to your list straight away. It's a short distance from Oakwood and Cockfosters station on the Piccadilly line and also has good parking facilities for those driving. The theatre is also served by local buses that stop just outside the car park.
The theatre is fully accessible for all visitors attending the shows.
The theatre patrons include Emma Bunton, Maureen Lipman, Sheila Hancock CBE, and Sir Kenneth Branagh, Victoria Wood and many more.

Chicken Shed itself has an amazing cast working on this show from start to finish from a young age to an older cast the magic that they pull is something incredible to watch. The cast is incredibly diverse working with disabilities going from scene to scene as a unit which works so well. 

Each scene was so different and as full of talent from the last to watch I found it incredibly awe inspiring to watch. The stage setting I thought was very clever and simple to know what you were watching. 
Each part of the show I felt was brilliantly created, my favourite scenes included  The Red Balloon and Our Young Minds 
The whole show from start to finish though was full of incredible talent. I genuinely look forward to visiting the theatre again to watch more performances.
