Our last rehearsal for Sweeney Todd took place on Thursday 12 March and soon after the country went into lockdown. 

We look forward to the day when Sweeney Todd will come to life again and bring us all back together to resume our passion for the theatre.

Keep safe and well everyone.  Please register on our membership site or check out our social media pages (see links below) to receive updates on when we will start back again.

Sweeney Todd Postposed until 2021

Owing to the closure of the New Wolsey Theatre until September 2020, we are unable to go ahead with our production of Sweeney Todd. 

The New Wolsey Theatre have already confirmed that there will be an Open Season in 2021, so our intention is that Sweeney Todd will be postponed until then.
