An exciting new venture from the Bish Bash Birthdays team
Where every child has the chance to POP
Our inclusive new performing arts group is a great way for children to be creative, build confidence and to challenge themselves. We want everyone to feel special and have the opportunity to shine. We don’t give out lead roles whilst others wait in the wings. Our unique approach is about building a portfolio of film and theatre work with each individual child balanced with them having fun and making friends in a group.
For children aged 5-11 years old in North London
REACH FOR THE STARS
The children will work towards the world-renowned LAMDA EXAMINATIONS in theatre performance and communication. Every child will receive some individual tuition whilst enjoying the social and supportive aspect of being part of a group. Preparing for the exams will be a fun, challenging and rewarding experience. Should a child not wish to complete the final examinations in December then they will not be obliged to do so. The journey along the way will still be extremely worthwhile.
LET YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE
In addition to the LAMDA preparation, the children will explore the world of musicals, theatre and film. Their work will be filmed as part of our Saturday group sessions. Excerpts of their performances will then be shared at the summer showcase. Everyone can have a go at the star role! For instance, if your daughter has her heart set on being Annie then we’ll film her in the costume singing Tomorrow. We’ll screen some of her performance at the end of year showcase – inter-cut with our other Annies!
STAR ON THE BIG SCREEN
Our summer showcase will take place in mid-July at the PHOENIX CINEMA in East Finchley. The cinema has over 250 seats so there’s plenty of room for family and friends to come and enjoy the show. We’ll be sharing clips, sketches and musical numbers filmed during our regular Saturday sessions. This is a unique and exciting opportunity for your child to star on the big screen. The showcase will also feature special live performances as well as our end of term presentation.
