Chickenshed's Young Company to present Stig of the Dump

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

STIG of the Dump, Chickenshed Young Company’s new adaptation of Clive King’s best-selling children’s novel, runs at Chickenshed Chase Side from Tuesday, May 7 to Saturday, May 18, 2019.

The production has been developed by members of Chickenshed’s Young Company as they celebrate the world of imagination and expression.

With original music written by a Young Company member , Stig of the Dump is jam packed with songs, dance and a heap full of drama!

Everybody told Barney not to play too near the edge of the chalk pit – but today was one of those grey days when there was nothing to do – nothing to play – and nowhere to go. Except to the chalk pit – the Dump!!

Join Barney, Stig and their many friends as they embark on a series of unforgettable adventures.

Chickenshed’s Young Company cast is aged between 7 and 21 years with three rotas totalling 300+ young people, making it possibly the biggest cast on the theatre stage this summer!

Stig of the Dump is suitable for families.
