Clear Creek Community Theatre's first production of the 2019/20 Season is the musical thriller: Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. With lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler, Sweeney Tood won the Tony Award for Best Musical and Olivier Award for Best New Musical.
Sweeney Todd was the last and arguably greatest of the five groundbreaking musicals Stephen Sondheim scored during the 1970s (following Company, Follies, A Little Night Music, and Pacific Overtures). It is the first Broadway show that Sondheim himself came up with the idea to adapt into a musical; all his previous projects had been conceived by a collaborator.
Sweeney Todd, whose real name is Benjamin Barker, uses his new alias to resume work in his barber shop above Mrs. Lovett’s struggling pie shop after being wrongfully sentenced to life imprisonment by the corrupt Judge Turpin. After swearing vengeance against the judge that tore his family apart, Todd and Lovett plot a unique plan that helps them both and leads them down a dangerous, thrilling path with deadly consequences.
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is on stage at CCCT September 6-22. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 2:30pm.
