Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

March 6 - April 5, 2020

G.K. Hardt Theatre

Book by Hugh Wheeler, Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Directed by Patrick Nims
Music directed by Ginger Beavers


This deliciously macabre musical thriller has shocked, awed and delighted audiences around the world.

Now staged in an innovative modern minimalistic style.

An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up... and the carnage has only just begun!
