Every week over 80 children and young adults rush to Marion Richard-son school to take part in an exciting theatre project run by the Chicken Shed Theatre Company. They can now demonstrate their excellent work in an amazing theatre to rival any on the London fringe circuit. The new Children’s and Youth Theatre of the East End seats 90, with superior light-ing and a state of the art sound deck.
The Head Teacher of Marion Richardson Primary School, John Ridgley was not content with just’ providing theatre facilities for his children. John wanted to offer them the opportunity to play a variety of sports. With no playing fields on site or even within safe walking distance, John has transformed part of his playground and built a massive Ball Park allowing the children to play basketball, cricket, tennis, netball and football on an artificial surface.
