    Steven Jay - May 2017

    It's been a pleasure to entertain residents at care homes all across the country with "Roll Out The Barrel". Bringing smiles, laughter and song to their day is extremely motivating and rewarding. I was very well looked after during rehearsals and there was plenty of time to learn and be well prepared for the songs and the performance. Being on the road has been an adventure and I've learned that I can speak to Simon about anything - for both the business and performance side of the work. Thank you SG Productions!

    Simon Wheeler - May 2017

    I have found working with Simon Gross on the Roll Out The Barrel Tour to be, once again, a rewarding experience. This has been my third tour and, as before, rehearsals have been well organised and intensive. During the tour, expenses and wages have been paid promptly and there is back up from head office if required. An all round great time.

    Holly Lucas - April 2017

    Having spent the last two months working on 'Roll Out the Barrel', I can happily say it has been a very rewarding experience, both for myself and the audiences. Each performance was totally different and the material was perfect for them; lots of laughs and memories shared. The payment is very fair and paid as per our contract agreement, with the office always contactable by phone or email when needed.

    Sally Renshaw - Activities co-ordinator, Cedar Care Centre Leicestershire

    Dear Simon, Sorry I missed your call. Kate passed on the message. I don't start until 10am and then have classes throughout the day, so not in the office much. The residents really enjoyed the show yesterday. They loved the variety and costumes, particularly the bumble bee. They sang-a-long and had a little dance. Regarding other shows... they would like to leave it at the moment and just have the Christmas Show, but I have kept the details in our activities file, so if they would like to proceed with one they can do so. Best wishes, Sally

    Daniela – Roll Out The Barrel 2017

    I really enjoyed working on Roll out the Barrel, to see some old tunes like the Lambeth walk coming alive with talented performers that gave it their all; is a great joy. Especially knowing that the audience will enjoy it just as much. Doing the costumes for Simon the 3 year in the row now, communications and preparations have been thorough and timely, as always. I like the standard that we achieve in these productions every time. And I am proud to be part of keeping some traditional pearly kings and that alike, alive and performing. With Simon's support and great vision and knowledge of Variety Theatre/shows the end product is sure to dazzle and leave a positive impression on anyones mind. I can't fault any operational process or that a like as everyone works hard and towards a common goal, enabling those that can't go to the theatre, to see a fabulous show in their own home.

    Emma Hansen - Christmas 2016

    Bringing theatre into the community for Simon Gross Productions of 'Winter Wonderland' was an affecting and gratifying experience. The residents of the care homes that we visited across the country, engaged positively with the performances. Bringing a Christmas theatre experience to such a special audience was very satisfying.

    Jaine Thorne - Burnworthy House, Somerset Care

    We were so impressed with the show we had on New Years Eve, the residents absolutely loved it. The families that came too were also so impressed, they said they had never seen anything on such a professional level in a care home before ! I could go on and on,. I am really impressed and I am in the process of sending something into Somerset Care head office to tell them how wonderful your acts are and make sure that they are recommended to all of the care homes.

    Enya Hendriocks - Dick Whittington 2016

    Working for Simon has been a great first, allround work experience. The short rehearsal period was very intense, efficient and productive, from which I learned a great amount of skills and knowledge, needed to perform in the care homes. Simon has got great experience in his field and knows exactly what you as an actor need to know about the nature of performing in care homes. I am very grateful for the opportunity that I had with Simon Gross.

    Simon Wheeler - Christmas Wonderland 2016

    I have completed two tours for Simon Gross and have found both rewarding. The shows are well produced and very entertaining for a niche market. The rehearsal process is extensive and professional and totally prepares you for the tour. It is a well paid position and payment is always on time. Overall, a great experience.

    Simon Wheeler

    Working with Simon Gross has been a very professional experience with good rehearsal conditions and an excellent use of music. Payment is always on time as well as expenses and, I for one, look forward to working with him again.

    Nick Milward

    I really enjoyed my time with SG. It was a rewarding and eye opening experience. Although the working days were tough, they were incredibly fulfilling. I was always paid on time and correctly and any concerns I had were addressed pretty much immediately. I have worked all around the world and it is an experience I will not soon forget

    Emma Hough - Bring Me Sunshine 2016

    This was my first performing job out of training and I have gained so much performance experience and confidence from working for this company. Although it was tough work what this company does makes so many people in the commuity very happy which made the job so fullfilling. It was always easy to contact Simon in the head office if there was a problem on the road. I was always paid on time and my expenses were paid every week.

    HC One Care Homes

    Just wanted to thank you for yesterday’s show. Emma did great. She is very professional and a lovely girl and she interacted with the residents really well – Well done! We look forward to having your company again.

    Claire Watson

    I have found working for your company very enjoyable and rewarding so far. Throughout rehearsals it was nice to learn a bit more about the type of venues and audiences we would be performing too, as well as putting together the show. I didn't feel that rehearsals were rushed at all and we were given plenty of time to practise our show and put our stamp on in it so far. Since being on the road, it has been a varied and enjoyable experience. No two places are the same, keeping the show fresh and exciting. Simon is easy to contact if any issues come up and all my expenses have been paid up to this date and my wages have also been paid on time on the specified date. A really good experience so far and I look forward to the next few weeks of the tour.

    Jesse Brooke

    Working for Simon Gross has been an absolute pleasure. It has been extremely rewarding and very enjoyable. Simon has been punctual with getting expenses and wages into my account, as well as always being at the other end of the phone whenever needed. This has been a very professional company to work for and it was inevitable when I said yes to staying on for the summer show. I would highly recommend this performing job to anyone.

    Hannah Lebrecht

    I worked with Simon Gross for two years, performing in his touring pantomimes, Snow White and Cinderella. During the rehearsal period, Simon put together a clean and very entertaining show. Both years were challenging and fulfilling. Going into the community and performing to the elderly was a very rewarding experience. I had fun performing and seeing the reactions of the audience. It was great to see the joy the pantomimes brought them. I also enjoyed the managerial side of the job. Making sure the cheques and cash were paid in on time, as well as talking to the venues. This was a worthwhile experience for me, as I learnt many new skills.

    Daisy Parsons

    The tour with SG Productions was one of the most fulfilling and rewarding experiences i have ever had. It was an incredibly intense tour with long days, early starts and lots of driving but this was made clear to me from the start so i was fully aware of what the tour entailed. Simon created a really fun and energetic show which we all worked hard on to bring to life. The contract was clearly laid out and i was always paid correctly and on time. It was a pleasure to work for simon and i would work with him again in the future.

    Lai Martinez

    I really enjoyed working with SG Productions (Simon Gross). The tour was a little bit hard due to the distances we had to do every day but we are very passionate and the hard work was compensated with the performances besides being very useful that the communication with the office was good and the payment prompt. I enjoyed the direction of Simon during rehearsals and I feel that the Cinderella Panto tour gave me a very good experience and many new skills.

    Daniela Fleckenstein

    My experience working with and for Simon Gross, has been a thoroughly enjoyable one. I have been given a chance to follow my passion for: creativity, costume , performance, production etc...about a year and a half a go, where with little experience I was met with suitable support, and given the opportunity to showcase my skills. Ever since, I have picked up other assignments for SG production and can't fault anything in their operations, from payment (some even earlier than expected) to flexibility, cause and sentiment: I was met with co-operation that helped me to grow as freelancer, nurturing my skills and abilities. Working in the creative industry in London is one of the most enjoyable but yet challenging one and the intensity and ability to deliver in this field, is down to one's own drive conviction and attitude. I felt that Simon knows and expects that , quite rightly so -to keep alive what is dear to his heart, producing shows that are to reach others, whilst also creating a pathway for others to shine and grow (in #showbizz) and an audience to relish the efforts.

    James Cowdrey

    I have completed two tours for SG Productions and they have introduced me to an avenue of performing that I have not experienced before. The touring is hard work but offers good pay and a real sense of job satisfaction to the right performer. The work is very personal and all involving. You need to be a good people person and not just a good performer. The shows have ranged from a small living room with two men, a lady and her dog to a large hall with 150 people in it - you need to be flexible and think on your feet at times! The shows are well thought out and it is clear that Simon has great knowledge and experience in this field of entertainment.

    Phil Gwilliam

    I worked with Simon and his SG production company during the spring and summer of 2015 it was very hard work but a wonderful experience. I toured the length and breadth of the country and the shows we provided where of a very high quality and enjoyed by all. The venues and dates where very well organised while payment was received swiftly and at regular intervals. Simon himself was a joy to work with and his professionalism shone through every aspect of the production.

    Lucy Victoria Mason

    Rehearsals had a relaxed but focused feel and Simon expects the very best quality from the performers he hires. He knows the product he is assembling inside out and directs his performers with experience providing many tips and sharing his own knowledge in the field. Costumes are fitted during the rehearsal period and good attention to detail is shown with these

    MHA Care Homes

    I would just like to give my residents feedback from the show Summer Holiday last evening. My residents thought the gentleman was absolutely superb and wished me to pass on their thanks and make sure that you had the feedback

    The Laurels Care Centre

    It was great having you at The Laurels today. The show was amazing. All the residents and staff enjoyed it a lot especially our residents with Dementia who seems to react positively to the entertainment. Thank you.

    Suzanne Varah / Richmond Villages

    Dear All at SG productions Just a quick email to say how much the residents and staff enjoyed Claudia’s entertainment, Gotta Sing, Gotta Dance . Claudia is a very talented artist who kept our attention for the whole hour which is an achievement since some of our residents can nod off. She brought joy, laughter and a few dewy eyes. Although slightly more expensive, it’s well worth it and we look forward to the next time when you perform for us in July. With our best wishes

    Tracey Burke

    The production that was performed at The Heathers was excellent and residents, staff and relatives enjoyed the show. We have however pre-booked entertainment for the rest of this year so are not looking to make further bookings at this time
