Our production will feature our ensemble throughout the piece as they inhabit our atmospheric performance space, creating the world of Sweeney Todd for our audience.THE PERFORMANCEThe performance will take place in ‘The Ditch’ in Shoreditch Town Hall. This unique performance space is a converted Victorian basement, with all the character and individuality that implies. A flexible performance space, it allows us to take a different approach to Musical Theatre staging and venture away from traditional ‘end on’ theatre. More than that, the space couldn't be any more appropriate than it is for this particular show, set in dingy Victorian London.The show will be fully staged with costume and lighting. We will perform with live music provided by our Musical Director.SCHEDULE FOR ‘Sweeney Todd’ AUTUMN 2017 REHEARSALS:Rehearsals will take place each week on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday nights 7-9:30pm for eight weeks from Wednesday 4th October – Sunday 26th NovemberWednesdays – The Union Theatre 7pm -9:30pmFridays – The Arts Theatre 7pm – 9:30pmSundays – City Academy Office – 6pm – 8:30pmCast will not be required for every single rehearsal, as we will schedule the actors for the specific scenes and songs that need work rather than full company each night.STUDIO PRODUCTION WEEK:Performers must be available for all of the dates below to be eligible for this production.All day tech and dress rehearsal: Tuesday 28th NovemberEvening Performances: 29th, 30th November, 1st, 2nd, 3rd DecemberMatinees: 2nd and 3rd DecemberSUBSCRIPTIONThe whole 9-week process will cost lead performers £695Our small ensemble will pay the reduced rate of £600 Gift Vouchers for Christmas Surprise someone with a gift voucher for a creative course this Christmas.Buy Vouchers At a glance Timetable ADDED TO BASKETProceed to checkoutClick Recommend this page to your friends We don't have any of these classes scheduled at the moment, to register your interest and make an enquiry please email : email@example.comMusical Theatre - Studio Company - Sweeney Todd venues Musical Theatre - Studio Company - Sweeney Todd tutorsAll City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries.
