We are, quite simply, left without words for the final night’s sold out performance of Sweeney Todd by Caistor Grammar School. The standards of musicianship, production values, costume, acting, singing and special effects would have shamed many a West End production; the fact that this was performed by students whilst balancing the demands of school simply beggars belief. There were undoubtedly individually outstanding performances but what shone most in this performance was the sense that everyone in the company: cast, chorus, orchestra and production team, knew that they were involved in something truly special. This is a show that will live long in the memory – a huge thank you to everyone involved!
