Cape Town – The well-known musical, Sweeney Todd, opens at the Theatre on the Bay in Cape Town tonight where it will run until 9 April.
Pieter Toerien Productions is bringing this musical thriller by American theatrical genius, Stephen Sondheim, to life with a stellar local cast.
Starring Jonathan Roxmouth and Charon Williams-Ros and featuring sublime theatrics, a thrilling, chilling story, suspense, passion and deliciously dark humour, Sweeney Todd is directed and designed by the award-winning KickstArt team of Steven Stead and Greg King.
In a Channel24 exclusive we get to go behind-the-curtain of the much-talked-about production to bring you an intimate photo essay that captures everything the audience never gets to see.
The all-star South African cast playing alongside Roxmouth as the Demon Barber of Fleet Street and Williams-Ros as Mrs. Lovett, includes Michael Richard, Candice von Litsenborgh, Jaco van Rensburg, Anne Marie Clulow, Adam Pelkowitz, Luciano Zuppa, Wesley Swain Lauder, Germandt Geldenhuys, Cameron Botha, Pauline du Plessis, Sanli Jooste, Claire Simonis, Megan Rigby, Schoeman Smit and Earl Gregory. The Musical Director is Rowan Bakker. Costume designs are by Neil Stuart Harris and the lighting is by Tina le Roux.
Tickets are available from Computicket.
