Charlie Testimonials:

Olivia & Elizabeth you guys really delivered a outstanding performance. You can see the children so enjoy being on stage and being part of something bigger! Great job 

Charlie was great. Much better than I expected, and the use of dance for the scenes was a clever touch. Really enjoyed it – great Sunday evening entertainment 🙂

Found the show colourful, lively and energetic! What a fantastic way for the children to showcase their hardwork. Just wish the children from the schools e.g. Crowland, St Ignatius etc. had a little more time on stage throughout the show.

Amazing tonight! Our first experience of a StreetzAhead show! Fantastic talent, energy and gob-smacking props. Thank you! Kate, Giulia’s mum from Coleridge

Thank you so much for inviting us, we both really enjoyed it!! Was so lovely to see so many kids involved. And omg how cool is Ruby 😁 she’s got such a laid back stage presence it’s hard to imagine she’s only 8!

The show was great 👍 well done!! I loved it! So nice to see it through both my eyes!! There’s some excellent dancers there too! 

@streetzahead I went to watch both shows today and I loved every minute of it !!!  The children have worked so hard and it shows well done to everyone.

Streetz Ahead are venturing out into the world of professional CHILDREN’S THEATRE. Elizabeth Lahav has spent 20 years in community arts teaching 500 children a week.  It is now her intention to use her knowledge and experience to bring inspiring theatre into the public eye with a gutsy show that will send you on a musical roller coaster alongside a story which deals with real life social issues of loss, hope and stereotypes.

Elizabeth, a BAFTA  dance advisor and , puts this unique production together that literally defies all protocols for Children’s Theatre.  Children are so often spoken to and taught by adults, it’s time for children to pass their own messages over to other children.

The dance tricks, original sound track and ‘off the wall’ choreography will send you on a musical roller coaster alongside the story, which deals with real life social issues of loss, hope and stereotyping. This enthralling, inspiring, gutsy show is going to BLOW the house down.

“A tale of true friendship, regardless of backgrounds or superficial stereotypes. Brilliantly performed by these four talented  children in ‘Wolf’ by @streetzahead”

“It was a brilliant show, entertaining both young and old with a powerful positive message. We’ll be back to watch it at the Dugdale Centre!”

“Amazing show – the children are so talented – enjoyed every minute – well done Elizabeth Lahav – very talented lady”
