Spring Show workshops started last week and we are absolutely blown away by the amount of talented young people who have signed up to make this truly fabulous show under the direction of Hannah McLean. A fusion ceilidh called ‘Your Turn’ featuring dance, drama, music and more!
The success of our recruitment drive was through our online platforms, also working with Toonspeak staff, young people and volunteers, and also going into schools. We managed to organise visits to five schools across the North East and North West of Glasgow, we reached over 300 pupils in school, 100 visitors at our event Crimbo Cabaret and more than 5,000 young people online!
We would like to thank all the Pupil Support, Pastoral Care and Drama Teachers who welcomed us in their classes and assemblies – namely to Mrs Sheena Johnston, Mrs Theresa Wilkin (Springburn Academy), Ms Marion Campbell (Glasgow Gaelic School), Mrs Lorraine Hutchison (Lochend Community High School), Miss Julie Harris (All Saints Secondary School) and Miss Mhairi Quinn (St Roch’s Secondary School).
Last, but not least, a big thanks goes to all the young people who helped us to spread a word about the Spring Show and who keep coming to Toonspeak’s workshops. It wouldn’t happen without you!
