Senior Drama - Whole School Performance
Sweeney Todd - November 2017
The School's Memorial Hall was transformed into the underbelly of Victorian London last night for our first performance of "Sweeney Todd". An enthusiastic cast and crew threw themselves whole-heartedly into this tale of murder and mayhem, performing to an enthusiastic audience in the first of four sell-out shows.
Hugh Wheeler’s Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (1979) is a musical and thriller set in Victorian England about a murderous barber who extracts revenge on unsuspecting people in London for the cruel abuse of his wife. It is based on the 1973 book by English author Christopher Bond and the music was scored by Stephen Sondheim.
Our thanks also go out to the production team including Mr Sunny Yu and Mrs Julie Betts-Nicholson. Below is a snap shot of the performance that took over the Memorial Hall for four nights!
