Sweeny Todd

9th - 19th September 2020, (2:30 pm & 7:30pm) The Oak Theatre - Titchfield Festival Theatre, Hampshire Prices start from £9

The infamous story of Sweeney Todd, who sets up a barber shop above the interesting Mrs Lovett’s Pie Shop. A wonderfully sinister musical taking you back to the dark victorian streets of London, where the demon barber will take his revenge. Sondheim’s almost operatic score will have you gripped from the opening and wonder if you really should attend the barber again!
