After weeks of incredibly hard preparation and planning, the grand afternoon finally arrived at Turney School – time for the prestigious end of term Summer Production! This is always one of the annual highlights in the Turney School calendar as it is an occasion when the whole school can join together and celebrate the many talents and enthusiasm that our pupils are able to put forward using music and acting.
We decided from the start that we wanted the Summer Production this year to emphasise our celebration of signing within the school community. This is an inclusive form of communication for all, and it allows everyone within our community to participate and access the curriculum. The production of Wicked Mr Wold was perfect for this – plenty of song, intrigue, and a plot that was ideal to share through the use of signing!
Pupils from Silver Class through to Class 12 have been working with Mr Louie and Miss Parker all term on the songs, signs and acting. We had a stunning cast acting out on stage, backed up brilliantly by a team of signers standing at the front of the stage to help all within the audience appreciate the performance. A couple of pupils provided extremely eloquent narration.
The success of the Summer Production was there for all to see, with not only the generous applause that each song received, but also the participation by all pupils within our community. This was an incredibly fun afternoon at Turney School! This of course wouldn’t have been possible without the support that we received from the many family and friends that kindly were able to attend the production.
We are proud to present a series of videos and some photographs to share below.
