SHARJAH: The UK's famous 'Ministry of Science Live' is coming to Sharjah with a brand new show and some bizarre new experiments to spread the word that physics is fantastic, chemistry is crazy and that every child has the chance to become a life-changing scientist.

Under the theme 'The world is one classroom', many elements of the 60-minute production range from the traditional science subjects such as weight, speed and gravity to the truly outlandish, including fire tornadoes, elephants' toothpaste, the future of travel and exploding ping pong balls. 'The world is one classroom' will also illustrate how inventors, engineers and scientists have shaped the modern world we live in and how the children themselves can be the spark that ignites a new way of working or living.

The show, being held at Masrah Al Qasba Theatre from Feb.21-23, is ultimately aimed at making science educational, accessible and entertaining to children, helping them to associate the subject with a positive mindset rather than a nervous attitude to a class which can seem ominous to many students.

It is the first time the 'Ministry' will have been to Sharjah, bringing the message to both parents and students that science progress is a global movement and that everybody can contribute to the future development of the world - irrespective of race, gender, religion or location.

Sultan Shattaf, Manager of Al Qasba, Sharjah's premier leisure, tourism and family destination, said: "We are delighted to host such a dynamic show. It's a great addition to our portfolio as we continue to draw more global events and entertainment." The Gulf Today 20th Feb 2017

'Sharjah to host fun show on Science Education'

Sharjah UK's famous 'Ministry of Science Live' show is coming to Sharjah for the first time to make science education accessible and entertaining to children, it was announced.

Under the theme 'The world is one classroom', 'Ministry of Science Live' will hold a brand new show demonstrating some bizarre new experiments to spread the word that physics and chemistry are both interesting subjects and that every child has the chance to become a life-changing scientist.

Many elements of the 60-minute production range from the traditional science subjects such as weight, speed and gravity to the truly outlandish, including fire tornadoes, elephants' toothpaste, the future of travel and exploding ping pong balls.

The show will also illustrate how inventors, engineers and scientists have shaped the modern world we live in and how the children themselves can be the spark that ignites a new way of working or living.

The event will be held at Masrah Al Qasba Theatre from February 21 to 23, and aims to help children associate these two subjects with a positive mindset rather than a nervous attitude to a class which can seem ominous to many students.

The show will also be bringing the message to both parents and students that science progress is a global movement and that everybody can contribute to the future development of the world - irrespective of race, gender, religion or location.

Sultan Shattaf, Manager of Al Qasba, said: "We are delighted to host such a dynamic show. It's a great addition to our portfolio as we continue to draw more global events and entertainment. As Al Qasba grows in stature as an international venue, we attract more and more citizens, residents and tourists of all ages and nationalities."

Gulf Today 25th Feb 2017

Sharjah 24: The 'Ministry of Science Live' has concluded its run of famous scientific shows to a host of Sharjah school children and members of the public with a series of extravagant new experiments and demonstrations to demystify the finer points of science.

Under the theme 'The World is one Classroom', the show demonstrated that anyone can become a life-changing scientist, regardless of race, gender, or location and showed how many of science's most famous figures came from a diverse range of backgrounds. The 60-minute interactive production included a variety of carefully engineered explosive experiments  and chemical reactions, with constant audience participation. 

Some of the more unusual operations included fire tornados, elephants' toothpaste, the future of travel and exploding ping pong balls. And using subjects as diverse as human rockets, liquid nitrogen and renewable energy, 'The World is One Classroom' also showed how science plays a part in our daily lives, making it accessible, relevant and fun for the children. 


The show, which was held at Al Qasba from February 21-23, was hailed as a great success. As morning shows were especially dedicated to schools, and evening shows on the following days at 7:00 pm were for public. 

Sultan Shattaf, Manager of Al Qasba, Sharjah's premier leisure, tourism and family destination, said: "The Ministry of Science Live is an excellent example of how international acts now choose to come to Sharjah in general and Al Qasba in particular for their appearances. For the organisers it is a natural choice to attract a wide and varied audience and for our citizens, residents and visitors, it is an opportunity to watch globally acclaimed productions. With each new performance that comes to Al Qasba, the greater our presence on the cultural, intellectual and educational stage. Through educational events and shows we host or organize, we want to be key players in the new generation's learning experience." 

Al Qasba is home to a range of world-class facilities and tourist attractions, including restaurants and cafes, the Kids Fun Zone, the Al Qasba Musical Fountain, the Eye of the Emirates Wheel, the Maraya Art Centre and two libraries, among other amenities designed to meet the needs of visitors of all ages and from all communities.

Fun science show captivates students in Sharjah
UK's famous 'Ministry of Science Live' show at Qasba theatre till Thursday



Sharjah: Exciting explosive experiments at the first UK 'Ministry of Science Live' show in Sharjah captivated hundreds of students and their families on Tuesday.

The show, currently under way at Masrah Al Qasba theatre, showed students how the subject of science is fun and should be enjoyed rather than feared.

Held under the theme 'The World is One Classroom,' the 60-minute production unmasked many of the mysteries of science through simple but captivating experiments that included fiery tornadoes, exploding ping pong balls and a CO2 fire extinguisher-powered spinning chair.

The show saw presenters throw beach balls into the audience while dropping a bowling ball onto the stage to show the concepts of mass and weight. They also set balloons full of hydrogen and oxygen alight to reveal how gases support combustion and created a mini volcanic eruption by mixing volatile chemicals.

All of the experiments were undertaken with proper safety precautions.

The opening show saw more than 200 youngsters from Sharjah's Australian International School and other audience members, with the children excitedly interacting with the presenters who aimed to inspire their young minds to embrace the world of physics, geology, chemistry, astronomy and other scientific disciplines.

Sultan Shattaf, Manager of Al Qasba, said the show "is the perfect blend of entertainment and education, making the subject of science enjoyable through aurally and visually exciting explosive experiments and how the universe works".

He said the show is aimed at engaging with children's minds and encouraging them to learn and develop through the medium of fun.
Organisers said the show proved to be a highly interactive production that carried a central message that any child can become a great scientist, regardless of their race, gender or religion.

The Ministry of Science Live draws heavily on the inspiration of such scientific luminary figures as Neil Armstrong, Isaac Newton, Leonardo da Vinci, Marie Curie and Alexander Fleming as it interacts with its young audiences.

The final performance of the hour long show for the general public is on Thursday, at 7pm, with seats priced at Dh50. Tickets can be purchased from the Al Qasba information desk and further information about the show can be found at the website: http://www.alqasba.ae. Gulf News Society 22nd Feb 2017

2015/2016 Jack & The Beanstalk Christmas & New Year Pantomime

Jack and the Beanstalk Raises Thousands for Charity

Monday 25th January

'We are excited to confirm that the cast of the Jack and the Beanstalk Pantomime which ran throughout December at Blackfriars Theatre have raised £2328.32 for the Pilgrim Hospital's Children's Ward.  

Throughout the Pantomime season the cast members of Jack and the Beanstalk took it upon themselves to run down to the foyer after every performance with collection buckets and ask the audience to make a donation for Boston Pilgrim Hospital's Children's Ward and they have raised a whopping £2328.32 - almost double the amount that was raised last year during the season of Dick Whittington.  Silly Billy and the rest of the cast along with David Grant from Blackfriars presented the amount to the ward sister Margaret Goodley on stage at the end of the season.  

Thank you to everyone that attended the Pantomime and all those that donated, we hope you enjoyed the show and we look forward to seeing you again next year for Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood!'

2015/2016 Jack & The Beanstalk Christmas & New Year Pantomime

Dec-Jan

Sasha is Lead Actor/Singer as Principal Boy Jack in Jack And The Beanstalk Pantomime Blackfriars Theatre Boston. Tony Peers Productions. Rehearsals: 4th Dec - 10th Dec, Tech Rehearsal 9th Dec, Dress Rehearsal 10th Dec, Blackfriars Theatre Boston. PA to Tony Peers: Elaine Hulme, Tech Services: Personna Entertainments,. Costumes: Janet Taylor, Choreographer: Abi Kingsley-Parker, Director: Alan Rothwell.

Pantomime is back with a bang this year at the Blackfriars Theatre in the form of JACK AND THE BEANSTALK.

This traditional panto is a mix of myrth, mayhem and misunderstanding as Jack triumphs over the evil Giant Blunderbore.  With full supporting cast, glittering costumes and not forgetting the wonderful BOSTON BABES,
this promises to be an unmissable treat for all the family.

One of the best loved pantomimes, it tells the story of Jack and his mother Dame Trott and their battle with the evil Giant Blunderbore. Fleshcreep, the Giants Henchman forces Dame Trott to sell Daisy the Cow to raise money for rent. Jack takes Daisy to market, however, on the way Jack exchanges Daisy for a handful of beans which turn out to be magic. There follows a series of adventures as Jack climbs the beanstalk to cloudland to rescue Jill from the Giants clutches, needless to say Jack overcomes Blunderbore and saves the day.

Jack and the Beanstalk raises the roof!

Wednesday 30th December
 

Blackfriars Theatre's Annual Pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk has been a hit with packed houses of young and old.

After a fantastic season last year with Dick Whittington the Tony Peers Production Team are back with the classic story - Jack and the Beanstalk. Their return to Boston brings with it the ever popular Mike Carnell (Idle Jack) this time playing, you guessed it, Silly Billy. Oh no he isn't we here you shout, Oh yes he is and the children love him. Even the Mums and Dads are won over by his boyish charm and endless energy, one audience member said "He's such a Cheeky Chappy but he gets away with it" which is exactly how it should be.  King Ethelred played by Glenn Ford is your typical bumbling fool and Dame Trott, Silly Billy and Jack's Mum is brought to life by the talented Ian Moore, whose larger than life character interacts with the audience in true Dame style - never a dull moment when these two are on stage!!!  

The show moves effortlessly through the story of good and bad with extremely well chosen songs performed superbly by the brilliant cast including Sasha Jacques as Jack and Katie Rodway as Jill his girlfriend and assisted by the hard working backstage crew.  All supported by this years 'Boston Babes' who dance their way through the show with wonderful choreography by our own Abi Kingsley-Parker. As with all true panto there is a baddy and Guy Mott as Fleshcreep causes the audience to raise the roof with their Boo's whilst the beautiful fairy, Rebecca Fenwick, promises good will prevail and produces her 'very special wand'.... we won't spoil it for you.  This traditional panto is a mix of myrth, mayhem and misunderstanding as Jack triumphs over the evil Giant Blunderbore. So come along and Boo or Cheer the Good the Bad and the Ugly.

As they did last year, the cast of Jack and the Beanstalk have decided to continue their support for the Pilgrim Hospital's Children's ward and are taking a collection for this worthy cause after each performance. During their time off between performances the lead characters jumped into a Taxi courtesy of Star Taxi's and headed down to the Children's Ward to surprise the children. They bounced around the ward for an hour or so bringing smiles to the children's faces before heading back to the Theatre to prepare for the evening performance.

The season runs through until the 3rd of January so make sure you don't miss out on this hilariously funny show, suitable for children and adults, everyone loves a Pantomime.

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.

The full production of Ministry of Science Live will return to the UAE in March 2016 to stage the theatre spectacular in the region after touring theatres in the UK in 2015.

WARNING. WARNING.

This is a public safety announcement...

Please keep your head firmly on your shoulders and your arms, legs and feet firmly inside the ride at all times - Ministry of Science Live is about to explode onto a stage near you soon!

We believe there is a Scientist, Engineer or Inventor in all of you...

Ministry of Science Live is not your ordinary science show - it comes with a bang. It comes with a whoosh. But most of all it comes with a Hovercraft built on stage... and we need one of you to go boldly where no person has gone before...... France. From liquid nitrogen frozen flowers to hydrogen bottle rockets fired right at you the show will take you on a journey using demonstrations and a few loud bangs to lead the way.

From the creative team behind Brainiac Live, Guinness World Records Officially Amazing Science Live and a whole load of other educational shows with an anarchic twist - Ministry of Science Live is not to be missed....

Got a class of budding Einstein's in your midst? If so, the Ministry of Science Live workshops could be just the experience they need!

Human cannonballs, hydrogen bottle rockets and how to create a smoothie using an exercise bike! It's laughter and learning at the same time, so come on - grab your lab coats!

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

2011 The Wind In The Willows Musical UK Tour

12th Sep-18th Feb

Sasha performs as Moley and other characters in a Musical performance of Wind in the Willows. Image Musical Theatre Company

Cast: Toad  Demitri Lampra, Moley Sasha Jacques, Ratty Stephen

This vibrant musical production has all of Kenneth Graham's Tales of the River Bank, the Open Road, the Wild Wood, the exuberant Mr Toad and Mole, Ratty and Badger. Beautifully written, played and produced, this show in Image Musical Theatre’s immensely popular format, gives the opportunity for everyone to take part. Some children play the rabbits, the ducks and the thieving weasels while the whole audience learns the chorus of four songs.

The production is aimed specifically at children aged 5 and above, and will feature a large amount of audience participation - giving children the chance to get involved!

The Image Musical Company specialises in the adaptation of classics for schools, here they tell Kenneth Grahame's classic tale of English animals by the river bank, and the adventures shared by Ratty, Mole, Badger and friends.

During a half hour rehearsal workshop, children are picked from the audience to take part in the theatre production taking parts as rabbits, ducks and weasels. The rest of the audience are taught songs whilst the children rehearse - then in an interval everyone is costumed ready for the play!

Locations and dates:   

  • Derbyshire 13th Sept - 24th Sept 2010

  • Ireland (Belfast) 27th Sept 2010 - 15th Oct 2010

Reviews

'We Were Toad-ally Entertained! The Prep School welcomed the Image Musical Theatre to school yesterday when they performed the ever popular children’s classic, Wind in the Willows. With a number of children chosen to help out, we managed to recreate the story in an hour long show. Those who were not actually on stage all learnt the words and actions to four songs and were a vital part of the performance, singing their hearts out when called upon.

With this week’s theme being ‘working together’, we were amazed at how Dimitri, Stephen and Sasha managed to work together so effectively to bring the play to life. The set, costumes and presentation were fantastic and the children and staff were thoroughly entertained throughout the afternoon, especially with the antics of a larger than life Toad!' Barnard Castle Preparatory School, Westwick Road, Barnard Castle, County Durham DL12 8UW, February 2011

'Hey guys i saw u doin the wind in the willows awesome. Hey dimitri its ur friend who was makin ur friend laugh.' Reviewed by: Jai Grant Facebook, February 3, 2011

'The children very much enjoyed today's exciting, creative and imaginative production. They came back to class enthused by the colourful settings, the great scenery and wonderful songs. They really enjoyed the opportunity to rehearse and collaborate in a dramatic production.' Facebook Image Musical Theatre Company

Sasha is Maid Marion in Robin Hood Tour 2010
 

Robin Hood Panto
Showreel

Review

'A new musical about Robin Hood. Where better to première it than at the Marks Hall Arboretum deep in the heart of the Essex countryside? Cambridge Touring Theatre are back on form with this musical romp which held the interest of both children and adults with its mixture of comedy, audience participation, brisk dialogue exchanges and enough sharpness in Barry Evanslyrics to earn grown-up chuckles at some of the allusions. Elizabeth Glass’ costumes are eye-catching with the bright colours and exaggerated shapes one associates with medieval illustration.

 

It’s axiomatic for this kind of play that the baddies attract more audience reaction than the good characters. So Robert Paice as the Sheriff of Nottingham and Cheryl Felgate as an extremely secular Abbess almost steal the show from Damian Robinson’s carrot-haired Robin and Sasha Jacques’ feisty Marian. Villains require henchmen, of course, and here they are Rodney Tosh (the tall one, doubling King Richard and a not-so-Little John) and Simon Balcon (the short one with a nice line in juggling and visual comedy who also plays Friar Tuck, once an inn-owner – but those premises are now occupied by a certain well-known coffee bar chain…).

 

The catchy tunes are by Simon Humphreys and provide a charming duet for Robin ans Marian as well as ensemble numbers. There’s one slightly over-long exposition of the plot’s background which could be trimmed back with advantage but otherwise Evans keeps the story fast-moving with its blend of the familiar and the off-kilter. I particularly liked the archery contest with the arrows in flight being passed from one cast member to another before landing dead on target and right in the middle of the bull’s-eye.'

'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).'

Reviews

'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
