A sunny room on an upper floor is prime real estate in the Bristol Place Senior Living Facility, so when the cantankerous Abby is forced to share her quarters with new-arrival Marilyn, she has no choice but to get rid of the infuriatingly chipper woman by any means necessary. A seemingly harmless bet between the women quickly escalates into a angerous game of one-upmanship that reveals not just the tenacity of these worthy opponents, but also deeper truths that each would rather remain hidden.

Sweeney Todd

July 26, 27, and 28 at 8pm, and July 29 at 2pm


Looking

Sweeney Todd has become a, worldwide success since being awarded eight Tony Awards
(including Best Musical), for its Broadway premiere and has now been adapted for high school
performers. Stephen Sondheim's and Hugh Wheeler's tasty, thrilling, theatrical treat has
simultaneously shocked, awed and delighted audiences across the world. 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 Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett'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!
