Stephen Sondheim's thrilling musical masterpiece Sweeney Todd delivers a bloody good time with its tale of murderous "barber-ism" and culinary crime. Set in 19th-century London, the story follows the title character, who after being banished for 15 years on false charges, returns to exact his revenge on those who wronged him. Teaming up with local pie maker Mrs. Lovett, they open a barbershop in which he slits the throats of customers and has them baked into pies ... or does he? This darkly funny show has been shocking and delighting audiences worldwide since its 1979 Broadway premiere won eight Tony Awards. It has since been made into a hit film by Tim Burton with Johnny Depp. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“Enough cannot be said about Matthew Park’s musical direction, which is sensitive and, at times, heart-wrenchingly beautiful.” — Cary Ginell, Simi Valley Acorn
“The entire cast … is the congregate star of the show, so tightly integrated in song, movement and emotion that it gives the simple plot an artful boost.” — Rita Moran, Ventura County Star
It’s Germany, 1891. The beautiful young Wendla explores her body and asks her mother where babies come from. Elsewhere, the brilliant and fearless young Melchior defends his buddy Moritz — a boy so traumatized by puberty he can’t concentrate on anything. One afternoon in the woods, Wendla and Melchior discover a desire unlike anything they’ve ever felt. Spring Awakening explores the confusion and desperation that ensue when the onrushing tide of hormones meets the ignorance of children. Spring Awakening celebrates the unforgettable journey from youth to adulthood with a power, poignancy, and passion that you will never forget._
