Black light/UV puppets

Black light puppetry is an illusion making the audience believe that the puppet is moving without the aid of a manipulator. UV lighting is placed above the stage and reflects off the UV clothing in front of a black background. Controlling the puppet are the puppeteers dressed typically in black in front of the black background, camouflaged from view. This can give a really interesting effect as for example you can make objects look like they are flying in mid air. This type of illusion/trick has been used in film, television and theatre productions.

This same style of puppetry was used in the 80s movie 'The Labyrinth'. There is a scene consisting of an array of fantasy jungle creatures that dance around knocking off each others heads. To make this possible they used what is now known as chroma key and the puppeteers where hidden against the matching background.

Most famous for his use of puppetry is Jim Henson. A master of his craft, Henson created the idea for the Muppets and designed most of the characters for the famous show. These characters were made out of different forms of fabric mainly felt or rubber felt, which meant that the puppets were easy to create and to control.

Reviews

A Theatre party combines the magic of theatre and the fun of the performing arts to make your child's party one to remember! We make sure your child's birthday is their favourite day of the year and   that all of the other parents are talking about the party outside the school gates for weeks to come!

We're flooded with fab feedback for this weekend! - 'Just wanted to say thank you so much to Sasha for coming to Isla's party today. She really did have the best time ever, and so did her friends. Tinkerbell was amazing and everyone had fun. I think you may start to get flooded with bookings now, the parents all thought it was great too. I'm starting to wonder what theme to book next year!' Jenny Coleman Oct 19th 20155

I wanted to pass on a big thanks to you and Sasha for making Immy's party so much fun. Sasha was brilliant with all the girls and had them eating out of her hand within a short time of the party starting. The cowgirl theme was well thought out and the games were great fun. Glitter tattoos were not needed in the end and actually I don't think we would have had time anyway. Please pass on my thanks again to Sasha. In the meantime I'll be sure to recommend you to the other mums from school. Many thanks. ' Jo Lacy 1st Oct 2015

Fab feedback from Jessica Wrench who's children had an Outer Space Party today : ) - 'Just to let you know that the party was great today! Sasha arrived really early and was lovely and very engaging with the children. They had a really really great time. Thank you very much..' Jess, 24th May 2015

 Lovely feedback and a stunning photo of Sasha and the birthday girl : ) -'Had the most amazing party today! Thank you Sasha from sense theatre, u made lots of children very happy! Xxx' Tracy Jones, Romford Essex, 20th April 2015

  • Acting & Improvisation - includes a series of drama-based games and exercises to boost confidence such as focus work, character communication and vocal projection. The director will also progress to more detailed performance notes on areas such as character, physicality and accents.

Reviews

'The teachers are absolutely brilliant' Connie
 

The teachers are very enthusiastic which makes it fun for the children. We decided to sign Esme up to Perform to help improve her confidence and encourage her to speak up in a crowd. I was really pleased to hear feedback today that she had said her lines very loudly. Claire Walker
 

'Weekly drama classes for 4-7s - Songs, games and dances to delight every young child

We have developed a unique curriculum using a mix of energetic games, catchy songs and funky dances to help bring out children's true potential.

Each term there is a new theme such as The JungleOuter Space or Under The Sea and children receive a colourful sticker poster which they complete week-by-week before performing a presentation on the last day. To help the children to learn the songs and dances at home, there is a new themed CD each term plus videos and a free mobile app available.

These drama classes for 4-7 year olds run in over 300 venues across London, the South-East and the West Country all offering the same unique mix of fun and lively activities that have been the hallmark of our success. Classes are held after school (60 minutes) and at weekends (90 minutes).
 

Weekly drama classes for 7-12s - Acting, singing and dancing with inspiring professionals - learning skills for life

Each week, professionally trained actors, directors and choreographers work with the children rehearsing songs, dances and scenes from a specially written show. They help them learn new skills and challenge them to do their very best in a supportive, fun and inspiring environment. On the last day of term, they combine what they've done into an inspiring performance for family and friends.

Each term, the children work together as a team rehearsing a special written musical production for family and friends on the last day. Past productions have included The Dream (based on Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream), Ebenezer (based on Dickens' A Christmas Carol), Bluebeard's Bride and Robinson Crusoe In Space. To help the children to learn the songs and dances at home, there is a new DVD of the songs from the show each term plus videos online.

These drama classes for 7-12 year olds run in over 70 venues across London, the South-East and the West Country. Each class offers the same unique mix of fun and lively activities that have been the hallmark of our success. Classes are held after school (60 minutes) and at weekends (90 minutes).'

7-12 year olds work together putting on a fantastic show before performing it to a rapt audience of family and friends.

We offer a range of themes suitable for the different age-ranges.'


Parties for 4-7s - High energy, fun and totally infectious
.

Perform Party Leaders arrive in costume as the character of your chosen theme whether that's a mermaid, pirate, superhero, cheerleader or popstar. With thrilling music and imaginative storytelling, the whole group will be totally absorbed.

Perform Plus Parties are facilitated by inspiring theatre professionals combining songs, dances and scenes into a short presentation for family and friends. The children will work hard, learn lots of new skills and love the thrill of performing at the end.

'We thought it was great and the kids loved it. Everyone was engaged and it was such an unusual and exciting theme, we were amazed how she kept them engaged for so long. They are still talking about it now. Sasha was very thorough even down to health and safety considerations.'Name supplied
 

'Sasha was flexible about start time and helped set the children up with their meal after the activities. This extra touch was very kind. After the meal, we saw several kids re-enacting in the garden some of the adventures Sasha had taken them on, so we could tell it was a hit!' – Alice Darley
