The Tale of Sweeney Todd...
What a week and what a show. Well done to all of those involved from cast, crew, band, front of house support and to our fantastic audiences. The feedback has been great and we are so pleased you all enjoyed it!
"From the opening vocals of “The Ballad of Sweeney Todd”, it was evident that this production had the right singers on board.... Also unmistakable from the beginning was evidence of a well-disciplined and well-rehearsed cast/collective." NODA
"This was the first time I have seen you all perform...fantastic cast and the songs were awesome. Well done everybody involved." Audience Member
"The ensemble supported the action particularly well with their strong unswerving voices and their wonderfully choreographed movements and the orchestra enhanced the singing and atmosphere admirably." Rosemary Westwell
