Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street was our first production of the season in Theatre 166, and it sure brought the house down! The initial showings were so popular that we had to add extra to accommodate the many people who desperately wanted to see it!
This production was an amazing vision from Artistic Director, Michael Thomas. And, it ended up being one of the most photogenic of the year’s productions.

Lori Turner set the mood – haunting and anxious.
Nashville native, William Warren Carver, was the perfect Sweeney Todd – he portrayed a perfect balance between lunacy and heartbreak. His singing voice was full and resonate.
Maddie Beer-Penwell, as the Beggar Woman, and Drew Owens as Anthony Hope meet on the Streets of London.
Ryan Shreve was captivating as the “other” barber in town, Pirelli.
Sweeney Todd would not be complete without his accomplice and baker of “meat” pies – Mrs. Lovett, portrayed by Allysun Mellick.
This cast photo is a true testament to the brilliance of Michael Thomas’ staging and Aaron Nicolas’ lighting.
