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

I have seen Music Man several times at many types of venues and felt like I was kind of tired of it but this production changed my mind. I found it fun, engaging and refreshing. It made me feel like moving to this cute community. Thank you for a fun unexpected evening. You guys did an awesome job!
With his fast-talking style, “Professor” Harold Hill convinces the town that unless they adopt his revolutionary music program, “The Think System”, the morals of the youngsters of River City will be forever doomed. He cons the parents into buying instruments and expensive uniforms in order to form the River City Boys Band. Chaos ensues as Hill’s credentials are questioned and he is called upon to prove himself to the citizens of River City.
This all-American family musical is guaranteed to entertain, featuring an entire score of classic hit songs including “Til There was You”, “Gary, Indiana”, “Lida Rose” and of course, “Seventy-six Trombones”.
Originally produced on Broadway in 1957, it ran for 1,375 performances, starring Barbara Cook and made a star of Robert Preston. The Music Man was embraced by theatre audiences of all ages and is unquestionably one of the most beloved shows of all time.
