Student Matinee Series


created and performed by M’Balia Singley

Due to a scheduling conflict, TURN at the Flynn is canceled. We hope to be able to present this show in the future.

These performances are in Flynn Space with a 150 person capacity.


Recommended for grades 7-12   |   Runtime: 1 hour

Using themes from Shakespeare’s Othello, M’Balia Singley confronts her experience as a Black woman in America with equal parts humor and honesty in this brand-new theatrical work. Turn weaves original songs, comedy, and engrossing stories into a performance that is both sweeping and intimate. From societal expectations to relatable family dysfunction, Singley turns to the unlikely 16th century play and finds connections to our 21st century lives.


Student matinee performances illustrate the dynamic relationship between the performing arts and the subjects explored in the classroom. Tickets are available at a discounted rate of $10 for schools and homeschoolers.
