Founded by Joel Kern in 2004 Make Believe have 50 schools in and around London, Australia and Hove, teaching youngsters the basic skills in the performing arts. Kern, who started Make Believe aged 15 by teaching five students to sing, dance and act, has seen the company grow into one of the most exciting performing arts companies with around 3500 children enjoying the after-school classes on a weekly basis. And with a raft of talent coming out of the Make Believe Talent Agency (including youngsters landing roles in West end Musicals, TV shows and adverts) the future is looking very bright for the Ilford-based producer who won the Federation of Small Business Young Entrepreneur of the year for South East England award.
Joel said: “We are all about providing young people from all backgrounds with a platform to showcase their talent. The ‘One Dream’ concept has been created to reach out to individuals who perhaps haven’t had the chance to attend a school like Make Believe and live their dream on stage!”
Centre Manager of Stratford Shopping Centre, Tony Peters, commented: “The team here at the Centre are extremely proud to be working in partnership with Make Believe and are delighted to be hosting the auditions for their ‘One Dream’ competition. We are excited to see these young people step up and showcase their wonderful talents.”
