SWEENEY TODD – The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
A Musical Thriller
Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
“And what, if none of their souls were saved? They went to their maker impeccably shaved.”
Attend the tale of the world’s most infamous barber Sweeney Todd.
Returning to London, Todd seeks his revenge against the lecherous judge who coveted his young wife and falsely imprisoned him. Sweeney’s thirst for blood spills over to his unfortunate customers. With the aid of his razor he exacts a far more terrible revenge, cheerfully helped by Mrs. Lovett, who is delighted to give new life to her disgusting meat pies!
Based on a Victorian horror story, Sweeney Todd is often considered Sondheim’s musical masterpiece. Sophisticated, macabre, visceral and uncompromising, Sweeney Todd mixes intense drama with dark humour. Performed over 9 nights by a cast of 50 accompanied by a live orchestral ensemble.
From the Producer, Musical Director and Choreographer of last summers’ Les Miserables School Edition, comes a tale that will have you tickled, terrified and leaving with a taste for pies… Dare you try one?
