Chickenshed NYC at the 14Y

Chickenshed NYC is a not-for-profit inclusive children and youth theatre company that enriches the lives of young people within the nurturing environment of a theatrical community.

All programming includes an element of science in the belief that art and science are not only compatible fields but can and do enhance each other.

Core programs include: Adventures from The Shed, interactive musical and puppetry performances for preschoolers and their families; My Little Adventure (MLA), a singing, movement, and storytelling program for preschoolers where each session is its own adventure; and Chickenshed Players (CP), a no-audition theatrical program where participants, guided by professional practitioners, create, devise, workshop, rehearse, and perform two productions a year.

Adventures from The Shed

Immersive, Inclusive Performances for Children Ages 2-5

Adventures from The Shed are informal, lively, and engaging performances filled with singing, dancing, puppetry, storytelling, and a little theatre magic. Each show has a theme, and children are encouraged to share their ideas as the story unfolds.
