Sondheim is at his bloody best in Sweeney Todd, his macabre masterpiece about a barbaric barber and an even beastlier baker. Set in 19th-century London, this adult production from STAR Repertory Theatre "attends the tale" of the title character, who after being banished on false charges, returns to the city to exact his revenge. Teaming up with pie maker Mrs. Lovett, Todd opens a barbershop in which he slits the throats of customers and she bakes them into pies. A legendary smash in 1979, this darkly comic show won eight Tony Awards while The New York Times gushed 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 Avo Playhouse in a vibrant production directed by Brandon Sherman. Learn More

This oldies but goodies stage show will take you back to the days when music was fun, the nights were cruisin’, and the dancing never stopped! It’s a salute to the music legends and greatest hits of the 50’s and 60’s presented in a live stage musical format. The Cruisin Oldies Show Band, fronted by tribute artists Mark W. Curran and Tom Haney, keeps the audience singing, clapping and laughing in this non-stop exciting show, which includes multiple costume changes and a unique, radio style narrative that tells the history of rock and roll – as it happened!
The ‘50s segment includes great songs like “Rock Around The Clock,” “At The Hop,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “All Shook Up,” “Pretty Woman,” Peggy Sue" and “The Twist” -even an affectionate send up of the hit musical “Grease!” Artists include Elvis, Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis, Roy Orbison, Dion and the Belmonts and Chubby Checker. There’s also a nostalgiac look back at the at the great doo-wop and street corner harmony groups that built the foundation of rock and roll.
The ’60s segment of the show covers the best of rock, pop, even a few psychedelic relics, revving into overdrive with a special salute to sixties supergroups like The Beatles, (“Twist and Shout,”) The Beach Boys (“I Get Around”) and the Four Seasons (“Sherry”).
There will also be a few guest stars and surprises you won’t want to miss in this fun, family-style show, so bring the kids and grandparents alike! Grease back your hair, put on your bobby sox or just wear your love beads – this show is suitable for all ages!
