We are thrilled to have the opportunity to present Sweeney Todd as our first of many upcoming musicals, just in time for the Halloween season in October. This theatrical spectacle is directed by Jason Sedlar, featuring Peter Graves in the role of Sweeney Todd with Skye MacDiarmid in the role of Mrs. Lovett.
What better way to celebrate the ending of the fall season then to attend a murderous musical?
Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s landmark musical tells the tale of a resourceful pie shop owner and a vengeful barber out for blood. After Benjamin is sent away by corrupt Judge Turpin to Australia for a crime he did not commit, he returns to London years later seeking his long-lost family. Finding his former life in ruins, he takes up his former barber mantel as Sweeney Todd and forms an unlikely partnership with Mrs. Lovett, who serves up pies underneath his former shop. Together, they wreak murderous havoc on Fleet Street and serve up the hottest – and most unsettling – pies in London. Though many fall to Sweeney's blade, he will not be satisfied until he slits the throat of Turpin, the man who stole his life and child.
It is our honour to cordially invite you to our spectacular show, premiering this fall and running from October 7th to 15th, 2023.
Featuring some of the most chilling music ever written for the stage, this masterpiece is sure both to thrill and delight our audiences.
