The program unites students with an without special needs through fun theater productions.
The inclusive theater methodology used by Chickenshed NYC eschews labels such as “disability” and helps each child become a successful member of the theatrical community. Children who are more typically developing create theater alongside those who have faced physical, neurological, or social barriers to inclusion.
Chickenshed NYC is an outgrowth of England’s Chickenshed Theatre Company, which for the past 45 years has pioneered the concept of inclusive theater for children.
Chickenshed NYC will collaborate with partner schools to apply for Arts Partnership Grants by the June 7, 2019 Department of Education deadline. Contact Elaine Finkletaub ([email protected]) to discuss being a Chickenshed NYC arts partner school.
