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 many 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.

Production Overview
Sweeney Todd will mark a unique collaboration between the Lewis & Clark Theatre and Music Departments. The production 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.
