SMC Stages 'Sweeney Todd' From May 30 To June 8
Posted May. 26, 2014, 12:00 am
The Santa Monica College Theatre Arts and Music Departments are pleased to present “Sweeney Todd” May 30-June 8 at the Theatre Arts Main Stage on the SMC main campus, 1900 Pico Boulevard, Santa Monica.
In “Sweeney Todd,” times are hard in 1846 London and one must make ends ‘meat.’ So, businesswoman Nellie Lovett adds something extra to the lovely pies she peddles from her shop on Fleet Street. The secret ingredient? Freshly murdered victims of her partner-in-crime, Benjamin Barker, better known as Sweeney Todd.
The production featuring Stephen Sondheim’s Tony award-winning music and lyrics is directed by Terrin Adair-Lynch, with music direction by Gary Gray and choreography by Lauren Blair.
