Sondheim is at his bloody best in Sweeney Todd, his macabre masterpiece about a barbaric barber and an even more beastly baker. Set in London, the musical tells the tale of the title character, who, after being banished on false charges, returns to the city to exact his revenge. Teaming up with local pie shop proprietress Mrs. Lovett, Todd opens a barbershop in which he slits the throats of customers and she bakes them into pies to get rid of the evidence. A legendary smash in 1979, this darkly comic show won eight Tony Awards while The New York Times gushed that it contained "more artistic energy, creative personality and plain excitement" than a dozen average musicals. Recently adapted by Tim Burton into a hit movie with Johnny Depp, Sweeney Todd now comes to Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts in a vibrant production directed by Robert Kelley. Learn More

The first thing my 4-year old said when the lights were on "I want to see it again". We all enjoyed it. It's a great show. The consumes might not be as good/explicit as one would like to see, but nothing is wrong in using your imagination.
One thing to note: we had two 4-year old's and 7-year old in our party. One 4-year old had to leave the show. If your child is 5/under, you should consider that this show is 2.5 hours inc intermission. My 4.5-year old was tired, but ready to see it again.
We will be going to see Peninsula Youth Theatre in the future. No doubt about it. Love it!
The Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant and host of fantastical Dr. Seuss creations come to life on stage in Peninsula Youth Theatre’s upcoming production of “Seussical: The Musical.”
The show is a delight for the entire family, boasting a memorable score of songs by Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens, the songwriting team behind the Tony-winning musical “Ragtime.” Co-conceived by Ahrens, Flaherty and Monty Python alum Eric Idle, the script speaks to both kids and adults in the same way Dr. Seuss’s books can be enjoyed by all ages.
