The Ditch


The City Academy Studio Company return this Autumn to present their production of musical thriller, Sweeney Todd.

This 1979 Broadway classic boasts an operatic, funny and epic score by Stephen Sondheim, and a gothic-inspired script by Hugh Wheeler. The musical, in its various incarnations, has won scores of Tonys, Oliviers and Drama Desk awards over the years, and has been reinvented in many weird and wonderful ways. This latest show is sure to be no exception.

Staged in The Ditch , which dates back to the same period as the tale of Sweeney Todd, the venue and cast will transport the audience straight back to Victorian London from the moment they walk into this atmospheric and unusual space!

The Studio Company launched in 2015 and features a cast of London’s finest amateur and professional performers. Sweeney Todd is a perfect project for this group whose focus is on detailed acting and musicianship.
