Sweeney Todd

Dates: 4th October, 2018 - 6th October, 2018
Venue: The Royal Court, Liverpool

Following on our sell-out production of Oliver last year at the Royal Court Theatre in Liverpool, we return to present Sweeney Todd this October.

A winner of 8 Tony Awards and Olivier Awards, this musical thriller tells the well-known tale of the Demon Barber of Fleet Street, with Stephen Sondheim’s dark yet comedic score.

Set in the Victorian era, Sweeney Todd returns to London to reprise his trade as a talented barber, as well as settling an old score. When he meets Mrs Lovett, the somewhat quirky owner of a struggling pie shop on Fleet Street, he’s encouraged to set up his new barber shop above her store…

From the dark elements of the score, through to love songs such as Johanna and Not While I’m Around and the brilliantly amusing A Little Priest, this is a show not to be missed!
