Snow White at Chickenshed

Date: Saturday 7th December 2019
Time: 3-5pm (including interval)
Venue: Chickenshed Theatre, Chase Side, Southgate N14 4PE
Age: strictly 5+
NLDCS Member Cost: Deaf children & siblings free, other family members £13 per ticket

In this year’s festive show at the Chickenshed, a new musical version of a familiar tale is given a new twist. Set in a colourful 1960s world where traditional roles are changing fast, what better place for a modern Snow White to ‘find’ herself – in all senses of the word? Over the years NLDCS members have been part of the Chickenshed production and this year we’ll see Olive acting in this performance.

A captioned, BSL-integrated performance is taking place on Saturday 7th December, for ages 5+, and Chickenshed is kindly offering our members subsidised tickets. NLDCS will provide free tickets for deaf children and their siblings, so you only have to pay for accompanying adults.

Tickets always go quickly and will be sold on a first come, first served basis. Please note they should be reserved for immediate family only, to give as many deaf people as possible the chance to see this amazing show from the allocated seating.

Book your seats by 6th November at the latest by:

1. Make a bank transfer to:
NLDCS
NatWest Bank
Account Number: 33864799
Sort code: 60-06-26
Reference: Chickenshed

2. Please complete this booking form and email it to zibiah@gmail.com

Seats will not be confirmed until the payment is confirmed and form is received.
Refunds will not be given unless your tickets can be re-allocated to another family.
No late bookings will be accepted.
