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.
With the encouragement from The Arts Council and partnership from Millfield Theatre, Elizabeth, a BAFTA award winning dance advisor and song writer, puts this unique production together that literally defies all protocols for Children’s Theatre.
Wolf is a fiery explosion of Hip Hop Dance, Physical Theatre and Rap performed by four kids who revitalise the tale of Wolf and the three pigs, with a contemporary new script.
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.
With special thanks to Aiyana, Hari, Henry, Mikey, Niki, Riley and Seby for contributing invaluable ideas during the devised stages. Thank you to Helen Baggett from Gecko for offering invaluable support and advice during rehearsals. Adrian Morgan for giving us his amazing voice for the narration. Tony Mahama for donating studio time to record the narration and singing voices. Lena Mystiris & Alan Harry for creating the brilliant props and set. Clive Lyttle from The Arts Council for giving Elizabeth encouragement and support to work towards developing her writing and directing. Sincere thanks to Paul Everitt, Head of Culture, Sports & Arts at Enfield Council and all his staff for believing in us and giving us the opportunity to rehearse at Millfield House. Akin Akinola, Youth Services Manager at Bruce Grove Youth Centre for giving us the space to rehearse. To the parents for their help and support and bringing their children to all the rehearsals and to The Streetz Ahead Trustees for giving us the blessing to realize Elizabeth’s dream to work towards creating a touring children’s theatre production.
Wolf on Tour
Camden Fringe Festival – August 2018
On Thursday 2nd August 2018, Wolf premiered at The London Irish Centre as part of the Camden Fringe Festival, one of the only companies to have children performing as part of the festival. It was a sell out performance with rave reviews:
“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”
