Angel Shed Theatre Company

Angel Shed is an inclusive theatre company that has been delivering high-quality workshops and productions for all children and young people in Islington for the past decade.

“Through group activities, singing & acting children developed huge range of invaluable skills for the 21st century. These include: focus, creativity, perseverance, teamwork, risk-taking & communication. All of these skills are developed through a style of learning that is inclusive and has laughter, enjoyment and fun at its very heart!
The Angel Shed staff are experts of the creative arts and model best practise at all opportunities. They are hugely enthusiastic and this greatly inspires the children.”
— Year 5 teacher, Hungerford Primary School, March 2017

All members are given the opportunity to develop a range of performance techniques including dance, drama and music throughout every term, with sharing ideas and devising at the core of every activity and performance.

Angel Shed’s vision is that every child, regardless of disability, income or background be given the opportunity to participate in the performing arts. As a fully inclusive theatre, all our workshops have a 1:2 ratio of practitioner to participant, enabling every child, whatever their ability, to be fully supported to achieve their very best.
