Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, is the new spring musical coming to Glen Allen High school. The actors have been practicing really hard, and very often, to make this one of the best musicals yet and like every other Glen Allen musical, it’s going to be great. The musical will be presented April 25th-27th from 7:30 p.m. and typically lasts about 2 ½ hours. The tickets are $8 at all lunches and $10 at the door.
The musical is about a man named Sweeney Todd, played by Owen Rice, who is looking for revenge after he was sent away to prison for 15 years. Sweeney Todd joins forces with Mrs. Lovett who owns a meat pie shop on Fleet Street. They unexpectedly create a bond and Sweeney Todd promises to take revenge on the evil judge who sent him away all those years ago. The tale takes many twists and turns until the satisfying conclusion.
