Sweeney Todd

The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

A Musical Thriller

Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim Book by Hugh Wheeler

April 27th- 29th @ 7:30pm & April 29th @ 2pm

This musical embraces the excesses and amplified vices and virtues which dominated the stories of the penny dreadfuls of Victorian England. Benjamin Barker was unjustly convicted and exiled to Australia. He escapes his captors and returns to London. Aided by the eccentric proprietress of a failing pie shop, Mrs. Lovett, Barker resumes his old trade using a new name, Sweeney Todd, and begins to mete out revenge. While seeking retribution, Sweeney Todd stumbles onto a gruesome and efficient method of accomplishing his goals.
