Through a series of sketches and songs served up in a style reminiscent of vaudeville, we meet the show’s two central characters: the pompous Sir (who represents “the Establishment”) and the downtrodden Cocky (who stands in for “the little guy”). Sir and Cocky meet to play “The Game,” which symbolizes the eternal struggle between “The Haves” and “The Have Nots.”

Starting the weekend of September 5th, 2014, Sweeney Todd will take that Players Guild Theatre in Canton, Ohio!

This landmark musical depicts the barber Sweeney Todd’s savage quest for justice and retribution after years of false imprisonment. Aided by harridan pie shop owner Mrs. Lovett, who is secretly in love with him, he sets out to avenge the wrongs done to him and his family. Combining comic turns and chilling drama, music hall-style numbers and hauntingly beautiful romantic songs, SWEENEY TODD offers a fascinating portrait of a man driven to madness by injustice.
