Cardinal Music Productions Presents SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET

Cardinal Music Productions and Korda Artistic Productions are thrilled to present an exciting new rendition of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street from November 11 to 27, 2022 at The KordaZone Theatre.

This production is directed by Bayleigh Cardinal, with music direction by Drew Beaudoin, and is produced by Joe Cardinal and Cardinal Music Productions. The cast includes Christopher Lawrence Menard, Tracey B. Atin, Joe Cardinal, Drew Beaudoin, Caiden Finlay, Jessie Gurniak, Brandon Presley, Breannah Presley, Sydney White, Amelia Daigle, Abbey Lee Hallett, Jules Walton, Alex Alejandria, Darien Pare, Benji Beaudoin, Chey Gauthier, Reagan Chapman Holland, and Maria Camila Boada.

Sweeney Todd has become a bloody, worldwide success since being awarded eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, for its Broadway premiere. The show starred Len Cariou as Todd and the late Angela Lansbury as Mrs. Lovett. Stephen Sondheim’s and Hugh Wheeler’s tasty, thrilling, theatrical treat has simultaneously shocked, awed and delighted audiences around the world. Of the original Broadway production, The New York Times called the show, “… something close to a masterpiece, a work of extreme – I am tempted to say evil – genius.” The show has won multiple awards, in addition to its Tony’s, including the Lauren Olivier Award for Best New Musical. Since 1979 there have been several revivals in the West End, on Broadway, and elsewhere. In 2007, Tim Burton directed a film adaptation starring Johnny Depp as Todd, Helena Bonham Carter as Lovett, and the late Alan Rickman as Judge Turpin. 

This is the infamous tale of Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, who returns to nineteenth century London, seeking revenge against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietess of a failing pie shop, above which Todd opens a new barber shop. Mrs. Lovett’s luck sharply shifts when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up… and the carnage has only just begun!
