Catherine, the daughter of the late genius, and Hal, one of his former students, must now uncover the proof's history.

LTA presents this gleeful and ghoulish musical thriller, with haunting music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. This sensational story of murder and meat-pies tells the story of Benjamin Barker, alias Sweeney Todd, who returns to London after 15 years of being wrongly accused of false charges. Will he get the revenge he seeks?
About the Ticket Supplier: The Little Theatre of AlexandriaFounded in 1934, The Little Theatre of Alexandria began as a small play-reading group in Old Town Alexandria under the Presidency of Miss Mary Lindsey. Full productions ensued, and in 1939 the group bought a rickety former blacksmith's shop located in Ramsey Alley, between Lee and Fairfax streets, for rehearsal space and construction of sets and costumes. Since 1934, the theatre has mounted over 300 productions.
Today, LTA is the oldest award-winning theater in the Washington metro area and one of only a few community theaters in the country with its own building and an ambitious 7-show season. Proud of their rich heritage, LTA is excited about its future. They may be a little theater, but their expectations are gigantic.
