Sweeney Todd will mark a unique collaboration between the Lewis & Clark Music and Theatre Departments. This vocal performance is partially underwritten by the George V. Bishop Endowment fund.
The performance will be staged in the round, placing the audience inside the action of the play. The process will focus on cultivating a strong sense of ensemble as well as collaborative creation of the world of the play.

Evil Judge Turpin lusts for the beautiful wife of a London barber and transports him to Australia for a crime he did not commit. Returning after 15 years and calling himself Sweeney Todd, the now-mad man vows revenge, applying his razor to unlucky customers and shuttling the bodies down to Mrs. Lovett, who uses them in her meat-pie shop. Though many fall to his blade, he will not be satisfied until he slits Turpin’s throat.
