Gems in the West End!
Well done to our older children from the Sapphire Saturday School and Monday Musical Theatre groups who performed at the Arts Theatre in London's West End! Both groups performed a 45 minute show devised by their group and worked so hard to get their performances 'West End' ready. We hope you all enjoyed the experience. We will be planning another performance in 2020!

We brought children together from our Saturday Theatre School, Monday Musical Theatre Company and Sapphire Youth Dance Company to perform scenes, songs and dances based on Roald Dahl's stories plus a brand new musical written by us called M.A.D! Well done, you all worked so hard :)
Forest Hill Library Performance
'Gems Nativity Goes Wrong'
Gems were thrilled to be commissioned to write a Christmas performance to be performed outside Forest Hill Library in December. The children from Emerald Saturday Acting class wrote a bonkers nativity with silly songs, costumes, props and audience participation. They performed brilliantly! Thanks to FH Traders Association and SEE3 for a fab opportunity :)
This year Emma helped organise Forest Hill Fashion week! Our Gems performed a Flashmob to Uptown Funk all around Forest Hill and rocked the Catwalk set up on Dartmouth Road! Visit http://fhfw.co.uk/

We had a terrific Christmas party and performances on December 7th. Big thank you to all parents who helped with learning lines, costumes and decorating masks! Big thank you also to everyone who baked a cake.. we managed to raise £135! This will go towards costumes for Sapphire YDC and their West End performance. We also said goodbye to Katie who will start work as a Primary School teacher in Lewisham from January. Thank you also to Sanaah's Mum for doing Glitter Tattoos for the children :)
