DCS is excited to be working on its lastest production, Sweeney Todd, due to be staged in May/June 2009. Director Sid Sidebottom, who has already demonstrated his ability to successfully stage Sondheim with productions of Into the Woods and West Side Story, is once again taking the helm. He has secured the talented Petrina Jahnz as his musical director and, in somewhat of a coup, has managed to lure the amazingly gifted Des Robertson out of retirement to design the set. Production meetings are already underway.
An information evening for Sweeney Todd will be held in the Uniting Church Hall in Steele St Devonport on the evening of October 31st. For those of you interested in superstition and coincidence, this is Halloween – a suitable evening to launch the search for our own Demon Barber of Fleet Street! Auditions will be held the following weekend.
