Sweeney Todd
Beware the tale of Sweeney Todd!

This November, CAODS Lincoln are delighted to present an infamous tale of love, revenge – and pies! – at the New Theatre Royal Lincoln.

Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s deliciously dark, thrilling theatrical treat has shocked and delighted audiences since being awarded eight tony awards on its Broadway premier. Recently given the Hollywood treatment featuring Johnny Depp as the eponymous barber, this roller–coaster of gothic horror and dark comedy is a ground–breaking piece of musical theatre.


Under the direction of Lyndon Warnsby, our talented company – accompanied by David William’s incredible 20-piece orchestra – promise an unforgettable theatrical experience drenched in blood, romance and laughter!


Tickets are now on sale – Book TODAY for this strictly limited run to avoid disappointment!

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe). All authorised performance materials are also supplied by MTI Europe

CAODS Lincoln

Seventy sensational years!

CAODS Lincoln is one of Lincolnshire’s premier musical performance groups and we were delighted to celebrate our 70th anniversary in 2019.

Our 2019 production of EVITA was a huge critical and commercial success and we are now looking forward to our 2020 production of Sweeney Todd at The New Theatre Royal, Lincoln.

In recent years, we have been delighted to bring a number of new musicals to the Lincoln stage, including ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ in 2016.

In 2015 ‘Sister Act’ was awarded Best Musical for the district by the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA), which the society was extremely proud of.
