Following 2012's record breaking run of Little Shop of Horrors and 2011's enormously popular production of Into The Woods, Sweeney Todd will be a fabulous evening of theatre complete with plenty of blood and some suspiciously tasty pies. Originally produced on Broadway by Richard Barr, Charles Woodward, Robert Fryer, Mary Lea Johnson, Martin Richards in association with Jean & Judy Manos This amateur production is presented by arrangement with JOSEF WEINBERGER LTD . on behalf of MUSIC THEATRE INTERNATIONAL of NEW YORK .
