"Sweeney Todd" is opera style, mostly sung, with minimal dialogue accompanied by music. The style and the tonal complexity of the music make it technically demanding for the mostly untrained actors and singers who are the core of this energetic and dedicated group. It's certainly dramatically more challenging than the usual musical theatre fare and light comedies that are the... More

Saw Sweeney Todd on 10-15-16 and throughly enjoyed the show. The cast is great, the singing is wonderful and the set with the barber's chair is amazing. If you can, see it before this show closes on October 30.

Asheville Community Theatre's production of Sweeney Todd was superb! Excellent cast, great production; vocalists were amazing... Thank you for a wonderful afternoon! This was right up there with ACT's production of Spamalot (another favorite). :)

We had the best time at their production of Sweeney Todd! It was a really great show and so awesome to see community members doing art just for the love of it. We've been going to Asheville for years but this is our first time seeing a show at ACT-- we will definitely be back!

Absolutely fantastic production! Watched the movie with Johnny Depp two days later, and it PALED in comparison to this cast. You'll LOVE it!

From holiday productions that are a must year after year to shows you know with local talent ("Sweeny Todd" is coming soon) to productions penned by NC writers and a children's theatre program, don't miss this Asheville cultural fixture.

Asheville have many talented people and the shows are always enjoyed. The musicals are my favorite. The cost of the tickets is well spent.

The talent in the Asheville area is amazing!!! Every show I've seen here, has been remarkable with great sets, amazing acting, and energetic and committed talent to bring the audience the dramatic story. The tickets are a bargin. You will never be disappointed in a show here! Don't miss a production and buy your ticket now for their next performance.
