Regents International School Pattaya and its Regents Stage Company presented their first of three performances of ’Sweeney Todd – The Demon Barber of Fleet Street’ on Monday, November 25.  It was a blood curdling two-hour bonanza of thrills, spills and even a spring loaded barber shop chair and trap door!

The audience was also treated to surprise guest appearances in the form of Principal Mike Walton and Head of Secondary, Garry Russell, who met their tragic end at the hands of Sweeney Todd.

Head of Secondary, Garry Russell commented: “It was a fantastic opportunity to see first-hand the effort and skill students put into every performance.  I feel very honoured to be part of the Sweeney Todd cast and crew but not so honoured by the applause and cheers as my character slid off the barber’s chair and down through the trap door.”

Head of Drama, Nicholas Lewis added: “The students have shown amazing skill and determination, continually improving their performances from early readings to dress rehearsals right up to the final curtain.  I am extremely proud of all the cast and crew for the quality of what they have achieved.”
