SPT Youth Program Presents SWEENEY TODD SCHOOL EDITION, Now thru 8/25
Produced in conjunction with Seattle Opera, the artists in the Seattle Public Theater Youth Program have been beating out the complex rhythms and singing the hypnotic strains of Stephen Sondheim's modern musical classic. The six free performances run tonight, August 17, 18, 19, 24 and 25 at the historic Bathhouse Theater on Green Lake.
Seeking revenge, a maligned barber returns to the filthy streets of 19th Century London only to find his wife dead and daughter in the hands of the corrupt judge who transported him to prison. As he plots, Todd forms a murderous alliance with Mrs. Lovett and the two launch a bloody spree of murder and meat pies.
Artistic and Education Director Shana Bestock says, "We are very excited to continue our partnership with Seattle Opera. Hearing opera pouring out of the Bathhouse is a thrill. This is our most ambitious adventure yet! Kelly and Barbara are a dream team of artistic elegance and educational excellence - it's an honor to see them work with this remarkable ensemble of young artists."
