Attend the dark, witty and Tony Award-winning tale of love, murder and revenge set against the backdrop of nineteenth-century London. An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth-century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Mr. Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovette’s luck sharply shifts when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up… and the carnage has only just begun! The school edition has been adapted with a few lyric and key changes to facilitate high school productions. The adaptations were done working directly with Mr. Sondheim to retain the dark wit and grad scope of the original work. At the show’s core is a challenging score of epic proportion that the Not Just Dance advanced students have embraced and mastered in one of the most challenging Not Just Dance productions to date. Because of the themes of murder and revenge, this show may not be well suited for younger audiences. Be sure to read the full synopsis when making decisions about younger students attending this production. https://www.mtishows.com/sweeney-todd-school-edition
