Rep Stage, the professional regional theatre in residence at Howard Community College (HCC), opens its 26th season with "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street," directed and choreographed by Joseph W. Ritsch with music direction by Stacey Antoine. Set in modern-day East London, this production of the Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler Tony Award-winning musical thriller features a diverse ensemble of eight and a chamber orchestra of keyboard, violin, and woodwinds.

The road to revenge leads Sweeney Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up for more. "Sweeney Todd" sparkles with brilliant wit, diabolical humor, and extraordinary music. Sondheim's score features such memorable song as "The Worst Pies in London," "Pretty Women," "Not While I'm Around," and "Johanna."

"Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" opens September 6, 2018, with a limited run through September 23 in the Studio Theatre of the Horowitz Visual and Performing Arts Center (HVPA) on the campus of HCC, 10901 Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia, Maryland. There will be post-show discussions on September 9 and 21. Rep Stage will also hold a pre-show lecture prior to the 2 p.m. performance on September 22.

Tickets are $40 for general admission, $35 for seniors and the military, and $15 for students with a current ID. Thursdays are $10 performances. For tickets and additional information, visit www.repstage.org or call the box office at 443-518-1500.
