North East School of the Arts proudly presents Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s musical thriller, Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, as the second musical theater production of NESA’s 2013-2014 season. By turns suspenseful and darkly humorous, Sweeney Todd tells the infamous tale of an unjustly exiled barber who returns to 19th century London seeking revenge against the judge who framed him and ruined his young wife. When Sweeney’s murderous obsession runs riot to include his customers, Mrs. Lovett, the resourceful proprietress of the pie shop downstairs, soon has the people of London lining up in droves with her mysterious new meat pie recipe! The performance dates are February 27 thru March 1 at 7:30pm and March 2 at 2:30pm. All performances are at the Robert E. Lee High School Theatre. Parents should note that SWEENEY TODD may not be suitable for young children.
