The Very Model of a Modern English Student

Several sophomores and juniors from Chadwick English 2 & English 3 classes attended musicals at area high schools this November.

First, they attended Central High School’s production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Kailyn Rozell enjoyed the play a lot. “It was kind of twisted and morbid, but I still liked it,” she said. Faith Wheelock said she liked it, but it was very scary: “The anticipation and suspense were killing me!…I mean it was a high school play, but the whole thing looked real!”

Next, students attended Parkview’s production of The Pirates of Penzance. Students who attended both productions seemed to appreciate the lighter tone of the latter musical. Landon Rozell said, “There was actually some humor, and I liked how the cast actually got off stage and interacted with the crowd. Not me, thank goodness, but I did think it was cool.”

Students received bonus points as an incentive to attend the musicals. There will likely be additional opportunities when other local schools present their spring musicals.
