Theatre in English: Sweeney

On  22nd  February, 1st and 2nd of ESO went to the theater to enjoy  Sweeney, a play based on the story of Sweeney Todd, a "clumsy" barber. An adaptation for teenegers of a Stephen Sondheim's musical, that later became a Tim Burton's film.  

The story starts in London, were Sweeney arrives after 15 years in prison, convicted by a murder that he hasn't committed. There he meets Mrs Lovett the owner of a shop that sells "awful and disgusting" meat pies. Together they will plan a revenge for the judge that put Sweeney in prison. However, the plan doesn't work out the way it  should.

There were four actors in the play, and they all had a great performance, with  lots of singing and some very funny moments. 

The students enjoyed it so much, and it was very rewarding for them to understand  all  the story in English.
