Welcome to CAODS Lincoln

Our next production is the deliciously dark ‘Sweeney Todd’ – taking place at the New Theatre Royal, Lincoln, from Friday 11th November to Saturday 19th November 2022. You can find out more about this production below.

Prior to Sweeney Todd, our most recent production was EVITA in 2019. This production was a massive critical success playing to sell out houses, but no one could have foreseen how much would change in the year that followed. Our thanks to the company, the fantastic creative team – and to you for supporting us! We can’t wait to welcome you back to live theatre once again.

We’re very proud of our rich history of producing high quality musicals for the people of Lincolnshire and beyond. We can’t wait to welcome you to one of our performances.

The last few years have seen fantastic productions including Evita, The King and ISister Act, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and, once live theatre returns, now we can’t wait to present Sweeney Todd .

CAODS always welcome new and eager people to join our Society – however you want to get involved and whatever your level of experience. On stage, back stage or making cups of tea, all are welcome to come and join our friendly group.

It doesn’t matter if your passion is for singing, dancing, acting, working back stage or in production and admin; We welcome all newcomers – get in touch with us today!

Sweeney Todd

Beware the tale

Beware the tale
of Sweeney Todd!

For their next production, CAODS Lincoln are delighted to present an infamous tale of love, revenge – and pies!

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 Williams’ incredible 20-piece orchestra – promise an unforgettable theatrical experience drenched in blood, romance and laughter!

On stage at the New Theatre Royal, Lincoln, from Friday 11th to Saturday 19th November.
