Boo Miller (Katy Perry and Jade from Little Mix), was last seen in a featured role in the Christmas 2017 TK Maxx Commercial.

This new concept for a tribute show, was launched in 2017 by Creative Director, Katie Barker-Dale, a former member of both Harlow based Makin’ Steps and The Brenda Taylor School of Dance.

The show has proven to be popular for all ages up and down the country but especially for young children and their parents. Katie said, “It has been amazing seeing my vision come to life with the help of a fantastic team. I’ve always wanted to create a show like this and the best part of the whole experience has been seeing the kids and their parents having fun, singing and dancing along together, I can’t wait to experience this at the Playhouse, it will feel like coming home!”
