PADOS present world-famous Sweeney Todd

Award-winning Prestwich Amateur Dramatic and Operatic Society return to The Met with their adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street from Tuesday 8 – Saturday 12 April.

.

The air is thick with factory smoke, children play with rats in the gutter and London is ablaze with sin and treachery. When corruption of the law is rife and crime lurks on every corner, Sweeney Todd, the most notorious and glamourised serial killer of the 19th century, sets out on a vengeful crusade to bring the upper classes to their knees and right a terrible injustice.

 

Sondheim’s Sweeney Todd first opened on Broadway in 1979 and on the West End in 1980. It has won a Tony Award and an Oliver Award, had several revivals and was the basis of a hit musical film in 2007 directed by Tim Burton and starring Johnny Depp.

 

Following on from their sell-out adaptations of Calendar Girls and Jekyll and Hyde, the latest production from PADOS is set to be a great success. Sweeney Todd will run at 7.30pm on Tuesday 8 – Saturday 12 April, with a matinee on Saturday 12 April at 2.30pm. Tickets to see the show are £10 on Tuesday and £12 for all other performances.
