SWEENEY TODD European premiere, in London on January 10th, to benefit Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity

Tim Burton’s film of Stephen Sondheim’s landmark musical SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET will have its European premiere in London at The Odeon Leicester Square, on Thursday, January 10, 2008. The premiere will be a benefit for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity; stalls tickets cost L50 each and are available by calling the GOSH events team at 020 7239 3069. Callers outside of the UK will need to add international calling codes to that telephone number. “By purchasing your ticket for the SWEENEY TODD Premiere,” notes the press release, “you are helping Great Ormond Street Hospital to help more children get better and get home–thank you!”

The pricier ticket package which offered a chance to attend the afterparty (at L175 per person) has already sold out–that’s fantastic for GOSH but less fortunate for Londoners who might have been hoping for a chance to rub elbows with Johnny Depp at the afterparty. Well, there’s always the red carpet! We’ll hope for fair weather and bright smiles all around on January 10th.

The Zone thanks Emma for breaking the news, and we wish good luck to anyone attending the premiere or the red carpet. May you have an evening you will always remember! Those who live far from London can always send a contribution to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity by visiting the GOSH website here: http://www.gosh.org/_donate/index.html It’s a way of being there in spirit, and at this time of year, when we have so much to celebrate, it would be good to share some of our bounty with those who watch over children and make them well again. –Part-Time Poet
