Whitley Bay Theatre Company Presents Sweeney Todd
Wednesday 11th September 2019 - Saturday 14th September 2019
Whitley Bay Theatre Company are back!
Following on from our last visit to craggy island with Farther Ted 2, we are delighted to bring you into the dark world of Sweeney Todd The Demon Barber of Fleet street Written by C.G.Bond.
In this version of the old melodrama, Todd has some grounds for his nefarious activities: his wife was taken by the Judge and his daughter abandoned, while he himself was deported on a false charge. He returns to avenge his family, accompanied by a sea captain, Anthony, whose life he has saved. Anthony falls in love with a young girl, the Judge's ward, who turns out to be Todd's daughter. Todd, meanwhile, sets up with Mrs. Lovett, the pie maker, and provides her with fillings for her pies. He proceeds with his vengeful plans but the outcome is bitterly ironic.*Please note this is not the musical version.
