The Skidmore College Department of Theater is pleased to announce its Spring 2013 mainstage production, SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET. Performances are April 12/14 and 18/21, 2013. All shows are in the Janet Kinghorn Bernhard Theater at 8:00pm, except Sunday matinees at 2:00pm.
Love! Murder! Revenge! Tragedy! Comedy! Stirring music! These are all elements of the great SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET, a musical thriller. Set in mid 19th century England, it is the chilling tale of a barber, Benjamin Barker, who is unjustly imprisoned for years in Australia by a lecherous judge who ravaged his wife. Barker returns to England as the vengeful Sweeney Todd. Todd opens up a barbershop above Mrs. Lovett's pie shop. His thirst for blood soon expands to include not only the judge, but also his customers. The resourceful Mrs. Lovett happily grinds up the bodies and puts them into her meat pies, which become a hot item in London!
