Chicken Shed is a theatre workshop where people of all ages and abilities come together to develop their performing arts skills. Phase 1, completed in 1993, produced an identifiable home for the company comprising a series of workshop areas around a flexible 300-seat rehearsal/ performance space. The foyer is a family room which acts as the social focus for parents and young performers. The Phase 2 extension and refurbishment is solely funded through the Arts Council lottery. It contains a new studio performance space, additional rehearsal and support areas, and is due for completion in January 1999.
