Performing Arts Students Tell the Tale of Brutal Barber

Sixth Formers have put their own spin on the story of legendary villain Sweeney Todd for their exam performance.

Year 13 performing arts students are staging Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and have adapted the script of the grisly story. For instance, in the original version, Mrs Mooney has a minor part to play but the group decided to develop her character and the story of why her pies are said to be filled with cat meat.

Cast member Ryan Ollett said: "Being able to adapt a script gives you the freedom to put your own take on it. We have wanted to do Sweeney Todd for a while now - it's got a good plot with lots of dramatic anticipation. We'd like people to come and watch us and support us in our final year at KSA."

The performance will take place in the theatre on Thursday February 7th at 6.30pm. Admission is free.
