On December 20th, 2021, our English EF course with Ms. Overthun visited the theatre „Komödie Düsseldorf“. Together we watched the English play „The Messiah“ by Patrick Barlow to get into the perfect Christmas mood. The play, which entertained us very well, is a unique, modern and most importantly hilarious interpretation of the Christmas story.

Since there were only two actors, they had to play the multiple roles using simple props and equipment to embody well-known characters like Mary, Joseph, various kings as well as all farm animals. In addition to their spectacular acting an opera singer completed the show and raised the Christmas atmosphere. Moreover, the audience was invited to participate in the play by shouting, chanting and singing along.

The theatre visit was definitely worthwhile! We enjoyed the funny and entertaining performance very much!
