The DJ and MC Academy have teamed up with The Chicken Shed, Brit School and many other amazing partners to put on an event Sharing Stages
Collaboration, partnership, performance
Chickenshed uses theatre as a platform to celebrate diversity and inspire positive change, often working in partnership with organisations who similarly value every individual.
Our new spring show will demonstrate the depth and breadth of Chickenshed’s creative partnerships of the past, present and future – bringing together to the stage a range of collaborative pieces to create a truly beautiful, moving and entertaining production. Sharing Stages will epitomise our ethos, and also clearly show our ambition to reach far beyond our walls to work with others and help create a better world.
