Duffy Theatre

“Growing Information Across The Nation”

Straight after lunch the whole school headed over to the hall to see a “Duffy Show”.

I was really excited like I was at Rainbows End because I had a little feeling that the show would be interesting and exciting. Before the show started they gave us instructions and rules to follow and they introduced themselves with good and loud expression. Their names were Tons, Chanel and Duffy. The show then started so Duffy popped over behind the huge book and got changed. Next he came back out and started chatting away to Chanel and Tons not knowing that we were behind him waiting patiently like self controlled students.

As he turned around to face us he felt surprised that we were just staring at him like we were robots and that bad people sent us there to kidnap him.

Later on Tons and Chanel vanished. Suddenly they came back out wearing island clothes and singing their voices out loud like a dogs bark to a Samoan song. At the same time Tons was dancing and Chanel was playing the guitar. As soon as the song ended they asked Duffy to spin the colourful wheel. Every time the wheel was spun Tons would take out a piece of paper that would give Duffy an opinion of what he could be in the future.

Duffy’s first option was Doctor and Nurse, so they asked a student to come up and be their patient, so Fetuli went up with happiness in her eyes. Duffy’s next option was sports star. This time they didn’t need a helper but they did need communication. Suddenly it was time for Duffy’s last option which was Chef. For their act they pretended to make a meal. I then had a time of laughter because Duffy did the Krusty the clown laugh and he sounded just like Krusty.

We all helped them by imagining that we have oranges in our hands and throwing it inside the pot. Next Tons and Chanel asked Duffy to open up the box and it would tell Duffy what he could be when he grows up. As he opened up the box, inside it had a huge sign that said ANYTHING, so that meant that Duffy could be anything he wanted in the future.

Before it came to an end they asked us if we would like to ask them questions. They kindly answered every question that was nicely asked.

Finally it came to an end, so Shaianne stood up and said a Thank You speech that was on the whole schools behalf. She was also thanking them for performing us a great show for us.

What a “Occupation Exploration” day we had.

My Highlight was when Duffy did the Krusty the clown laugh, He made me burst into laughter


  1. What a wonderful reflection of your day, Angelica. You obviously have tried very hard to use different language features to make your writing more interesting for the reader. I especially loved your simile 'like a dogs bark to a Samoan song'to describe the singing. Well done.

  2. I do enjoy reading your recounts Angelica. You have a fabulous memory and really take the time to write it all out in very interesting and fun ways!

    It sounds like you are a Simpsons fan. The Krusty the Clown laugh coming from Duffy would have been very funny!

    Keep up the great writing :)
