Testimonials

Sharon Saunders

What an amazing night from start to finish, and I am still buzzing! On arrival by the main entrance, a staff member wearing a mask removed it as soon as he knew that I was Deaf. After checking our tickets, he signed ‘follow me’ in British Sign Language when we asked where the lounge was. He then asked us if we had seen Mamma Mia before in sign language. After commenting on his effort into signing, he said that Daryl taught the team signs relating to the show. I was really impressed with that because it made a difference and really made me feel included.

Gavin Kelly (Deaf sign language user)

It is really important to ensure that theatres and interpreters are given feedback so that the deaf community can recomment the best interpreter. Daryl is this person.

Daryl surprised me with his high level of skill and ability to manage the script, voices and flow of the panto. His indication of when to look at the stage allowed me to watch him and the show without being confused.

Barbara (Hearing parent of a Deaf child)

I thought he was amazing, even though I don’t need a signer but can sign to a degree !! I understood what he was signing and really enjoyed watching him as he was soo expressive and I found it really enjoyable to watch the signed singing, which was fabulous.

He really got into the role and I found myself watching him more so than the actors. The best signer I have ever seen at a performance!

Sharon Saunders (Trustee of Exeter & South Devon Deaf Childrens Society & a Deaf sign language user)

Daryl was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G! The best I have seen for a long time. Can’t wait for the next one with him interpreting! A rare unique interpreter. We are so lucky to have you here in Devon. Don’t you dare leave us!

Gisia (Parent of a Deaf child)

I have to say, It caught my attention ! He was so into each charácter !! Lots and lots of face expressions and it really made me enjoy the show even more. ​

Even my daughter could not kept her 👀 away from him !

Jackie Wallaker (Deaf sign language user)

He was so amazing! I fall in love with him as a result of his amazing face expressions, small dance and his signing. Please, please stay in the theatre for next time. No negative things about him. Would love to watch him again

Amy Kelly (Deaf sign language user)

All I can say is that he (Daryl) was absolutely amazing, His body language was amazing and the way he shows the different role and their character meant I could tell who was talking.

In the past when going to the theatre I have tended to not watch the signer as I have found them too boring and there has not been enough expression or characterisation!

Sharon Saunders (Deaf sign language user and Deaf Access and Inclusion Worker)

The interpreter Daryl McMullan, he was AMAZING! The best one I have seen in a long time. I am not the only one who said this… Daryl really got into all the roles of the different actors, he was very expressive and enjoyable to watch, so engaging. Daryl was excellent in becoming the character just before the actors came on stage, this helps us what was coming next – so clever!

Helen Grindle (Specialist Teaching Assistant for Deaf students)

Sharon Saunders (Trustee of Exeter & South Devon Deaf Childrens Society and a Deaf sign language user)

You were amazing; I was blown away by your talent.

Lorraine Walsh (Deaf Sign Language user & specialist teaching assistant for Deaf students)

I was pleased to see that you used the same BSL interpreter for the Dick Whittington performance today.

Again the interpreter, Daryl was superbly fluent with the whole show, especially as some songs were very quick paced. He was able to keep up with improvised dialogue such as when some children were invited on stage and cast members interacted with specific individuals in the audience.
