Sweeney Todd is a musical thriller by Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler. “It is a macabre story of revenge and misguided justice,” said Chris Roberts, Program Coordinator and Professor of Theatre.  

The play centers on a barber who returns to Fleet Street to seek revenge against the people that he believes murdered his wife and kidnapped his daughter. His victims meet an interesting fate when he and an old friend, Mrs. Lovett, join forces.  

Sweeney Todd has been great experience,” said Kelly Fuller ’10, a Stevenson alumnus, who will be performing the role of Mrs. Lovett.  “The music is some of the most challenging that I’ve performed. It’s been nice to come back and work on an exciting production at Stevenson with a really hardworking cast.”

Sweeney Todd’s character will also be performed by a Stevenson alumnus, Matt Seiler ’08. “I am very excited and honored to come back to Stevenson,” Seiler said. “The best part is working with this amazing cast. The student actors are absolutely fantastic.”
