Powder River Playhouse presents "Sweeney Todd"

Date: Oct 19 - Oct 20, 2018

Attend the dark, witty and tony award-winning tale of love, murder and revenge, set against the backdrop of nineteenth-century London.

Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street has become a worldwide success since being awarded 8 Tony Awards (including Best Musical), for its Broadway premiere and has now been adapted for school/community performers in Sweeney Todd, School Edition. Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s tasty, thrilling, theatrical treat has simultaneously awed and delighted audiences across the world. An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth-century London, seeking vengeance against the morally corrupt Judge who framed him, threw his young wife into the streets of London and took his only child to be raised as his ward. 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 revenge inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up… and the tale has only just begun.

This Edition has been masterfully adapted, working directly with Mr. Sondheim, to retain the dark wit and grand scope of the original work, with a few lyric and key changes to facilitate community productions. At the show’s core is a challenging score of epic proportion and a masterful ensemble cast full of lower-side London characters. Come join us in the streets of London, where the story has a very different ending when you choose to take matters into your own hands.

Powder River Playhouse's mission is to create outstanding theater experiences for our community that educate, challenge and inspire.
