Anyone who has ever been to see a Chickenshed Christmas show will know what a big affair it is. This year they are doing EverAfter, and directing it will be Belinda McGuirk. So it felt a good time to chat with Belinda about the show, her involvement with Chickenshed and how you even start directing 800 performers.
EverAfter – A Mixed Up Fairytale!
When Hansel and Gretel are left to fend for themselves in the Wild Woods, a series of events is set in motion, taking the two children on a journey through some of our best loved fairytales. Come and be enchanted by mischievous Princesses, who dance until their shoes are worn out; meet – at least one – wicked stepmother intent on revenge; sympathise with Hansel and Gretel’s father, who searches the forest for a sign of his beloved children; and laugh, boo and hiss at the man with no name…
Chickenshed is thrilled to announce the return of its Christmas Show with EverAfter. Featuring their famously large and amazingly diverse cast, this mixed up fairytale will be a dazzling and unforgettable theatrical journey for adults and children alike.
