There once was a barber who had it all; a happy life, a beautiful wife – until it all ended in bitter strife. The barber Benjamin Barker loses it all in one savage act of treachery. Now known as Sweeney Todd, he's slicing his way through Victorian London in search of vengeance with his twisted baker-in-crime, Mrs. Lovett, by his side.

Starring the talented Ben Mingay (Hacksaw Ridge, Pirates of Penzance, Packed to the Rafters) and Antoinette Halloran (Mary and Max, Macbeth, Summer of the Seventeenth Doll), and directed by the critically acclaimed Stuart Maunder AM. This eight-time Tony Award®-winning Stephen Sondheim musical thriller will leave you on the razor’s edge of your seat.

So come on in if you dare. This production is as close as you'll want to get to London’s most notorious serial killer.
