Young film and drama students were bowled over to meet one of their TV heroes at a live performance.
CBeebies presenter Sidney Sloane’s very own Sid’s Show came to Barking’s Broadway Theatre on Saturday, March 22.
In the audience were more than 40 members of the BossCrowns Film and Drama School, some as young as two years old. For many, it was the first time they had been to a theatre.
Their tickets were donated by Creative Barking and Dagenham, which is part run by the council.
James Mapp, five, said: “I love the show because I loved the acting and the aeroplane part, and CBeebies, and the end”
Shanlon Thomas, 10, said: “It was interesting because it links into our work, our scenes and we could use different objects for different shots.”
BossCrowns is based at the Rivergate Centre in Barking’s new Riverside development.
Lead tutor Wayne Saunders said: “Sidney is a great performer who has previously worked with our group at the start of the year at our workshops so our students were excited to see his show.”
The drama school said it plans to work with Sidney again later this year.
