Everyman's Land

On the 26 and 27 March we put on Moira Townsend Williams' Everyman's Land. It was our annual lower school production and 84 students performed and helped. An astonishing number of students contributed and worked towards a common purpose - putting on a wonderful show.

Maintaining Haygrove's excellent history of delivering top quality productions, Everyman's Land kept this tradition and gave our learners something to cherish and be proud of.

It was a privilege to see our students shine and they really did do rather well. Francesca Smith gave a stirring performance as the ever optimistic Almira. The story follows the treacherous journey of refugee girl Almira. Fighting to save two strange tribes of creatures, Almira never gave up hope of saving the laid back Redbacks and the stressed out Bluebacks from destruction.

Such high numbers of participation illustrates the passion our learners have for their drama and performing arts. The show gave them a vitally important opportunity to showcase their talents under the pressure of performing in front of a live audience. The collaboration and support given to each other was lovely to see. Year 9's helping out Year 7's; Year 7's helping out Year 8's and so on. All working together seamlessly for the greater good of the school, it was a pleasure to see such teamwork and purpose.

Much support and time was given to our students so that the show would be a success and so special thanks are needed for all who contributed. Thank you to the cast and crew of course, plus thank you to all parents and carers who without your support such a show could not be possible. Many thanks to all staff who helped and encouraged and gave up their time to support the learners, Mr Mckie for his stewardship of the tech team, Mrs Thompon for all of the costume preparation. Thank you to Mrs Clark for the Front of House work. A big thank you to Mr Jennings and his band of consummate musicians, they delivered fantastic energetic music.

Finally a very very special thank you must be given to the producer - Mrs Guppy. Mrs Guppy certainly had her work cut out, not just with the management of 84 students, but in making the show stylistically sound for our audience. A very brave choice of show meant that our learners were really challenged. Without Mrs Guppy at the helm the show would not have been possible. Such dedication to the cause was nothing short of mesmerizingly inspirational, not just for the learners, but for the staff who supported the production. How Mrs Guppy managed all 84 and shaped their excitement into a polished performance speaks volumes. Mrs Guppy's child-centred approach, conjoined with a commitment to accept nothing short of excellence from all, inspired us all to make sure Everyman's Land would not be a land that time will forget.
