Theatre to cast for Sweeney Todd


Masquers Theatre in Soap Lake has announced it will be casting for their fall musical “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” on Monday and Tuesday July 27-28 at 7 p.m.

Directed by Randy Brooks, Sweeney Todd is a 1979 musical thriller, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and a book by Hugh Wheeler.

Set in 19th century England, the musical tells the story of Benjamin Barker, alias Sweeney Todd, who returns to London after 15 years in a penal colony on trumped-up charges, to take revenge on the judge who banished him.

Sweeney Todd opened on Broadway in 1979 and in the West End in 1980. In addition to several revivals, the musical has been presented by opera companies. It won the Tony Award for Best Musical and Olivier Award for Best New Musical.
