Stage Right Productions, the company that brought the hit sold-out show, Spamalot to the Tower Theatre, presents Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street by Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler. Performances will be June 13-29 at 2nd Street Theater.
“I am thrilled by the talent that abounds in our local theater community,” says Managing Director of Stage Right Productions, Sandy Klein. “Just when I thought we’ve done the best show we’ve ever done, along comes Sweeney Todd. I have been wanting to bring this show to 2nd Street Theater for years, and its finally become a reality. The audience will definitely be talking about this one for a long time.”
Sweeney Todd is a chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of revenge, murderous barber-ism and culinary crime. Sophisticated, macabre, visceral and uncompromising, Sweeney Todd nevertheless has a great sense of fun, mixing intense drama with howlingly funny moments of dark humor; audiences find themselves laughing hysterically one moment and gasping in surprise the next.
Sweeney Todd features some of Central Oregon’s finest talent, including David DaCosta as Sweeney Todd, Lilli Ann Linford-Foreman as Mrs. Lovett and an ensemble that sounds like they just came off the Broadway stage. Sweeney Todd is directed by Juliah Rae (Dixie Swim Club, Distracted) with musical direction by Scott Michaelsen (Spamalot, Company).
This chilling and frighteningly humorous musical will kick off with a champagne reception on Friday the 13 of June from 6:30-7:30pm. Shows start at 7:30pm with the exception of Sunday Matinees at 3pm.
