S4K International have been bringing shows to the Gulf and Middle East since 2007 - 2018 marks the twelfth year of producing shows in the UAE - and is led by Producer/Creative Director JULIAN CHENERY and Producer CAROLYN CHENERY.

S4K International was one of the first international production companies to perform at DUCTAC (Mall of the Emirates) after its opening in Autumn 2006, when it presented S4K's A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM at the Centrepoint Theatre in February 2007.

Since then we have striven to pursue the CULTURAL ENRICHMENT and CREATIVE EDUCATION of children and young people across the GCC region in THEATRES and in SCHOOLS. Our THEATRE PRODUCTIONS fuse Drama, Performance and Music into an exciting live musical storytelling style that is genuinely engaging, accessible and fun. Our acclaimed EDUCATION PROGRAMME of Workshops and Masterclasses are equally renowned.

We are proud to have played a part in bringing the world of William Shakespeare - the world's most famous playwright and poetic dramatist - to the young people of the world; and we continue to create and produce our musical adaptations of the world's most popular folk and fairy tales.
