Exciting news as we unroll an amazing 2023 show.
Ladies and gentlemen, please take your seats, as and get ready for an uplifting story of a journey of discovery from classroom to the centre of life’s stage, Make Believe Presents Climb!
Climb is an original story of ambition, achievement, teamwork & friendship told through the mouths of our students.
A fast-moving production, brought to life by Make Believe. Climb uses song and dance bringing to life the feel-good spirit of a new era. So, dust of your inhibitions and join our engaging cast of characters on their journey upwards, towards a previously unreachable star!
Our 2023 performances will span across three incredible venues: The Hackney Empire, Millfield Art Centre and the Greenwich Theatre.
All students will be part of this wonderful experience. Each age group will be performing three numbers within their allocated performance, together with a finale number where everyone will come together.
However, there is more.. students can also become a part of the Resident Team. This is where students from across the network audition to do more in the show and have the opportunity to perform in all three venues.
There is also going to be something a little extra too this year!
This is what Make Believe is all about – opportunities, showcasing raw talent and giving legs to the stars of the future.
We cannot wait for all our students to reach their unreachable star!

Health & Safety and the care of our students is our number one priority. In all of our shows we have DBS checked staff and licensed chaperones working backstage with the entire cast. All information regarding this will be provided nearer the time. Our safety policy is also publicised across our website and we invite you to read this ahead of attending any of our schools, shows and events.
