J6 Show Reviewed on BBC Radio Scotland 

On Shereen Nanjiani’s Saturday radio show Brian Beacom, senior feature writer of The Herald nominated our J6 Show as his Moment of the Week.

Here are some of the things he said:- "In the last 7 days I've been to see 4 theatre shows and I have to say the best show I've seen this week was the Primary 6 kids of Kelvinside Academy...perfectly choreographed...shy little kids suddenly becoming very ebullient and confident...a lovely spoof on the Oscars...these kids are smart, they're really switched on, they get satire...gender swap stuff going on...Will Scarlet played by a girl...and the campest Robin Hood you've ever seen!...what a great mix, what a great feeling and a great energy about the whole production!"
