    • Synopsis
    • Is Lindenhof haunted? A mysterious figure in a hooded cloak was seen slinking about the hallways of the noble boarding school for girls by French teacher Mademoiselle Bertoux and the twins Hanni and Nanni. But since a busload of exchange students from England is expected at any moment, they decide to track down the “ghost” at a later moment. However, when the bus from the British Isles arrives, out comes not a flock of proper young English ladies, but a pack of rowdy teenage boys. The teachers are perplexed, the girls delighted with this unexpected home delivery of English schoolboys! The pragmatic Mademoiselle Bertoux spontaneously engages the boys to star in her upcoming student performance of Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet.” The rehearsals soon get out of hand, not only because both Hanni and Nanni fall utterly and totally in love with Clyde, the dashing “Romeo” who doesn’t realize that he’s dealing with twins; Daniela has also cast a covetous eye on the young tragedian and to obtain the role of Juliet, she declares war against the twins. But the kids have other concerns, namely to sweep the dust off Shakespeare’s venerable classic and pep it up with some cool dance numbers... Meanwhile, encouraged by the force of numbers, the youths gather up their courage and sneak into the attic in search of the ghost...
