Julia Rodriguez-Elliott will direct the Stephen Sondheim favorite at the Los Angeles venue.

Southern California will be able to attend the tale of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street when Pasadena's A Noise Within Repertory Company presents the Stephen Sondheim-Hugh Wheeler favorite February 11-March 17. An official opening night is slated for February 17.

A Noise Within Co-Artistic Director Julia Rodriguez-Elliott will direct the tale of revenge and retribution, featuring music and lyrics by Sondheim and a book by Wheeler.

The production will star Co-Artistic Director Geoff Elliott in the title role, joined by resident artists Cassandra Marie Murphy as Mrs. Lovett, Jeremy Rabb as Judge Turpin, Kasey Mahaffy as Adolfo Pirelli, Joanna A. Jones as Johanna, James Everts as Anthony Hope, Harrison White as Beadle Bamford, Amber Liekhus as the Beggar Woman, and Josey Montana McCoy as Tobias.

The creative team will feature scenic designer François-Pierre Couture, lighting designer Ken Booth, sound designer Jeff Gardner, costume designer Angela Balogh Calin, wig and makeup designer Tony Valdés, properties designer Stephen Taylor, dialect coach Andrea Odinov, and dramaturg Dr. Miranda Johnson-Haddad. Angela Sonner serves as production stage manager alongside assistant stage manager Mikayla Bettner.

"Sweeney Todd is Shakespearean in scope, and that’s what we do best at A Noise Within. We tell epic stories in an intimate space, up close and personal, in a way that brings the humanity and the truth of the piece to the forefront," said Rodriguez-Elliott in a statement.

A Noise Within will offer a number of accessible options for performances, with a sensory-friendly performance February 15, and nine weekday student matinees beginning at 10:30 AM. Performances February 14 and 15 will also be "Pay What You Choose."
