Uncovering Specialness


Our Partnership with Chickenshed Theatre

Gillen Brewer is excited to share our partnership with Chickenshed Theatre, the United Kingdom's renowned inclusive theater program which recently came to NYC. The Showcase Performance featured 10 Gillen Brewer students along with 120 other students across the city. They shared the stage for over an hour and put on a fantastic performance.
