IODS Theatre Company are thrilled to be returning to the New Wolsey Theatre this summer with their musical production of Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd. Originally arranged for 2020, they are itching to get their show on the stage! With a cast of 40, a 12-piece orchestra and an extremely talented production team, this is set to be one of their most exciting shows yet!
Sweeney Todd has become a bloody, worldwide success since being awarded 8 Tony's for its Broadway premiere, one of them for Best Musical. Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler (A Little Night Music, Pacific Overtures) crafted a tasty, thrilling, theatrical treat with Sweeney Todd that has simultaneously shocked, awed, and delighted audiences across the world.
An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to 19th-century London seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up for more! Featuring two unforgettable star turns and some of the most chilling music ever written for the stage, this masterpiece is sure to both thrill and delight audiences.
This is an amateur production presented as part of the New Wolsey’s Let's Celebrate: Summer '22 programme.
British Sign Language is available.
