Sweeney Todd The Demon Barber of Fleet Street 

A Musical Thriller

30 June — 4 July 

Te Auaha, Tapere Nui, 65 Dixon Street Wellington.

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Book by Hugh Wheeler

From an Adaptation by Christopher Bond

WITCH Music Theatre presents a chilling new production of Stephen Sondheim's award-winning musical thriller. With its razor-sharp writing and spine-tingling score, Sweeney Todd takes audiences on a heart-palpitating ride through the twisted and darkly comic minds of its infamous characters and unforgettable music.


Sweeney Todd is a dark masterpiece. Born out of the ashes of tragedy, Sweeney Todd returns to London in search of his wife, daughter and revenge. With the assistance of the beguiling and eminently practical pie shop owner Mrs. Lovett, a delectable opportunity arises – genius and ghoulish in equal measure. Their pastries go down a treat, but Sweeney’s insatiable hunger for vengeance leads them perilously close to the razor’s edge.


Considered to be one of the most dramatic, powerful and theatrical stories ever orchestrated. Sweeney Todd is devilishly clever and deliciously funny.
