Attend the tale of 'Sweeney Todd'...

Stephen Sondheim’s 'Sweeney Todd' is a thrilling tale of vengeance and true love, featuring some of the finest music ever written for the theatre. Set in Victorian London it tells the infamous story of Sweeney Todd, the demon barber of Fleet Street, who forms an enterprising business relationship with Mrs Lovett, the proprietor of the downstairs pie-shop.

Sondheim’s most thunderously exciting score underpins a production of spine-tingling wit, humour and tenderness, that has been acclaimed by critics and audiences alike – including Oscar and Golden Globe success for Tim Burton’s big screen box office hit, which starred Johnny Depp.

Now, Peach Theatre Company ('The History Boys') brings this iconic musical thriller to the Auckland stage for the first time in decades, in an electrifying production that features a world-class cast and a live orchestra.

Directed by Jesse Peach, this razor-sharp production stars international musical theatre sensation Ross Girven as Sweeney, and multi-award-winning Christchurch actress Lynda Milligan as Mrs Lovett. They are joined by Kiwi theatre legends Michael Hurst, Sophia Hawthorne, and Paul Barrett, Australian favourites Tyran Parke and Michael Lee Porter, and NZ Idol finalist Jessie Cassin, supported by an 11-strong chorus that includes Antonia Prebble, Ray Columbus and David Aston.

Don't miss this electrifying production of Sondheim’s glorious masterpiece, staged to mark the composer’s 80th year.

Musical theatre at its very best.
