Bright Sparks performers & Theatre Agency

Bright Sparks Performers Theatre and Dance Academy

Founded in 1970 by Gloria Berry, Bright Sparks are one of the South East’s leading performance academies providing quality theatrical training and all round performance skills to children of all ages.

We currently hold classes for children aged 2½ to young adult in Anerley, Bermondsey, Biggin Hill and Croydon; offering training in ballet, tap, modern, singing, drama, street dance, musical production, acrobatics and circus skills. We also hold residential and non-residential holiday courses in London and the South East.

Bright Sparks pupils have starred in numerous West End musicals, with leading parts in the shows Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Lion King, Les Miserables, Woman in White and Billy Elliott. They have performed in national tours of the Sound of Music and Annie as well as regional productions such as A Night at the Musicals, La Bohème and Turn on the Taps.  

Many former pupils have starred in popular TV series including Nicola Stapleton (Eastenders & Bad Girls), Carly Hillman (Eastenders), Adele Silver (Emmerdale), Ike Hamilton (Family Affairs & The Boat that Rocked) and Callum McNab (Football Factory, The Firm and Rock and Chips) and more recently in Casualty, Holby City, The Bill, The Robinson’s Family, Footballers Wives, M.I High and Five Days.

Over the past 10 years we have had the pleasure of supplying pantomime babes for some of London and the South East’s top theatres including the Hammersmith Apollo, Fairfield Halls, The Orchard Theatre, Dartford and the prestigious Hackney Empire, to which we have had the exclusive contract now for 18 years.
