Theatre Siena at Siena Heights University will present the musical thriller “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” from March 29-31 in Francoeur Theater on the Adrian campus.
Stephen Sondheim’s and Hugh Wheeler’s chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous barber-ism and culinary crime tells the infamous tale of the unjustly exiled barber who returns to 19th century London seeking revenge against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. His thirst for blood soon expands to include his unfortunate customers, and the resourceful proprietress of the pie shop downstairs soon has the people of London lining up in droves with her mysterious new meat pie recipe!
Curtain times are at 8 p.m. each evening. Tickets are $12 for general admission, $8 for seniors and students.
For ticket information, please call 517-264-7890.
