Taste the Sweet Meat Pies of Revenge! SWEENEY TODD Comes to EPAC
If you're looking for a close shave, don't go to the barber on Fleet Street. He's a nightmare! And don't go to Mrs. Lovett's bakery or you'll get more meat than you bargained for! When Sweeney Todd returns from his fifteen-year exile, he's bent on bloody revenge against the corrupt judge who banished him. But he can't do it alone.
Todd enlists the help of a local baker in a quid pro quo arrangement. Everything's going smoothly until a young boy looking for a mother and a young man looking for love get into the mix. But Todd won't let anything come between him and his revenge.
