Event Details

Join the Theatre Department for this deliciously dark musical about the Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

This multi-award-winning musical, with lyrics and score by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler, tells the story of masterful barber Sweeney Todd as he returns to London to take his revenge against the corrupt judge who destroyed his life. In his vigilante quest, he meets the cheerfully amoral pie shop owner Mrs. Lovett, who soon becomes an accomplice in his deadly schemes. Together, they sing their way through murder and mischief to the top of the food chain in this morbidly funny musical thriller.

Sweeney Todd runs April 1-3 and April 8-10, 2022 in the Jesse H. and Mary Gibbs Jones Theater. Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m., Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2:00 p.m.

Tickets are free for Southwestern students, faculty, and staff. Discounts are available for teachers, students, military, and seniors.
