Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

Presented by Wildwood Park for the Arts

October 26-29, 2023

Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s landmark musical tells the tale of a resourceful pie shop owner and a vengeful barber out for blood. After he’s sent away by a corrupt judge, Sweeney returns to London years later seeking his long-lost family and forms an unlikely partnership with Mrs. Lovett, who serves up pies underneath his former shop. Together, they wreak havoc on Fleet Street and serve up the hottest – and most unsettling – pies in London.

The Western Front, Christmas, 1914. Out of the violence a silence, then a song.

All Is Calm is a collaboration between director Ben Grimes’s Riverside Actors Theatre and music director Bevan Keating’s Praeclara vocal company, presented at Wildwood Park for the Arts. Come experience a Christmas story like no other!
