The show was written & directed by Elizabeth Lahav with help from Sherona Knight as choreographer and produced by Olivia Wakeford. Filmed by Bez Gibson and photographed by Natalie Gee. Our fantastic dance teachers for the term were; Mikiel Bruce, Sherona Knight, Tashan Taylor & Taylor Agarrat.

We would also like to thank our backstage team and chaperones for their invaluable help.
“Thank you Liz and Olivia, we absolutely Loved the Streetz Ahead performance today, I loved our kids performance from Osidge Mini but also really enjoyed the other schools acts too, loved the videos of the different schools, really enjoyed learning about the kids and watching videos of why they love dance especially the video messages from the kids, beautiful and emotional videos of the kids who had cancer and from care homes (really brought a tear to my eye!), really beautiful and wonderful stories, this show I liked best because you guys created wonderful stories combined with funny and entertaining talents throughout and the dance just capped it off, brilliant and thoroughly enjoyed, well done for an amazing job (From Mo, Alaras dad in Osidge Mini) 💥👏👏👏🙌🙏😊”

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.
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”

Greatest Show on Earth Testimonials:
‘I just wanted to give you and your team a Big Thank You, for the support you have given. On the night of the show i was absolutely amazed and overwhelmed by my child’s performance and all the other children. But seeing her appear so confident and happy on the stage make me know she is in the right hands and company. I Thank You so much and I’m looking forward to the next show x’
‘We all really loved the show – after all of these years watching Streetzahead, this was indeed the greatest show yet! It was by far the best performance by my daughter who loves these songs – which brought tears to my eyes! Thanks so much to Liz especially who continues to be such a energetic, positive influence – completely passionate about what she does without a trace show biz ego!’
‘The kids you work with are so lucky to be part of Streetz Ahead with both you and Liz organising it all! Well done to you and the rest of the team involved too. It was a fab show! Xxx’
‘What I liked the most was to see the older children who were quite clearly talented, some of those kids performances were spectacular. I see them as huge role models for my daughter to aspire too. The young Afro/Caribbean girl was simply sensational as were the 3 main boys’. However it’s unfair to single those 4 out as they were all great.’
‘Wow what a show! One of the best Streetz Ahead have done! The little boy at the start was brilliant!‘
‘I had tears in my eyes at certain points esp the bearded lady song who was fab too!’
‘I LOVED that show. The first 5 mins was the best opening of a SA show that I have ever seen. Lovely to hear beautiful pure children’s voices singing. Amazing energy from everyone. Finale was full of love. Overall an amazing success’
‘WOW!! Love love LOVED the show. I saw every child have an amazing time. Every child seemed to shine. Beautiful. We left on such a high…. a sign of a great show. Xx’
‘It was incredible! What an amazing experience for the children too. They loved every minute of it. 12 hours and two shows later, they wanted to perform another one! Liz and Olivia, thank you, so very much, for realising your brilliant vision and truly caring for all the children participating xx’
‘Well done for an outstanding show. Wow! So so impressed with the way it was adapted & you have some really talented kids in your company. Wow.’
‘What an amazing performance last night! I can honestly say it was the best one yet! Well done to all the talented children, teachers and helpers, so fantastic to see them all grow and develop each term. Many thanks 👍x’
‘Hello. Thank you once again for an fab show!! Each time we are more excited and amazed at the progress of the kids! You guys are doing a great job! Keep it up! My child’s confidence has just shot up! ‘
‘What a show indeed! I just want to say thank you for putting together the production last night. My family totally enjoyed it. My daughter was performing. She is very shy and I can now see she is coming out of her shell thanks to the confidence boast that this exposure has given her. I look forward to attend more productions from Streets Ahead’
Well done to all the students involved in our Autumn term and to all our amazing teachers, teaching assistants and all the amazing show day helpers.
