Sweeney Todd opened on Broadway in 1979 and went on to win eight Tony Awards including Best Musical. Sondheim composed the razor-sharp score and his brilliant lyrics are alternately gleeful and gruesome - based on the 19th century legend of a London barber driven to a life of crime after a malevolent judge takes his wife and child from him. 

A crafty, comedic and captivating thriller.

An amateur production by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd

Tickets: £7 (Concessions £5.50)
