History

The theatre company began in September 2005 as an outreach project of The Chickenshed Theatre Company based in Southgate, London, and was financed through Chesham Park Community College’s Performing Arts status.

We were incorporated on 19th December 2005 and now provide workshops for a number of amazing young people in and around the Chesham area.

The Theatre Shed (formerly Shed@ThePark) has adopted Chickenshed’s ethos and continues to develop a creative process, which includes all its members with equal value.

We do not ever close doors.

We are committed to each individual, encouraging, inspiring and acknowledging their contributions; these are central tenets of our inclusive approach.

We ensure that everyone counts and everyone can join in. There are those who would usually be at risk of exclusion through factors of health, social development, or ethnic diversity. We make sure that the arts are open to all who wish join.

The The Theatre Shed Company is constituted as a ‘not-for-profit’ charity, which distinguishes it from other theatre groups in the area, and we received charitable status in June 2006.

It was therefore formed with the intention that it would become self-financing on a sustainable basis, by seeking financial support and sponsorship as a registered charity.
