Some students were asked their views of the Sweeney Todd Workshops Peter gave them.

These were their responses…

The workshop with Peter Polycarpou was particularly interesting as he brought the words to life, emphasising Johanna’s internal torment at being locked away by the creepy judge. I would say the most difficult part of the whole process has been trying to portray her feelings with minimal movement, for a large part of the musical Johanna is sat looking out of her window, but the music is so powerful that I can gradually feel her character emerging.

ESTA FELIX (Johanna)
Our recent workshop day with Peter Polycarpou allowed me to delve into my character’s thoughts and feelings, and it gave me more confidence regarding the acting side of the show.

SAM SMITH (Sweeney)
The workshop brought the words to life. What we had previously been reading as a piece of music suddenly became a dramatic reality, with emotion and feeling.
