The Herberger Theater Center (HTC) and Arizona Broadway Theatre (ABT) - a Resident Company at the Herberger Theater Center - continue their successful co-presenting partnership with Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.
The performance on Thursday, September 13 will feature a special guest who will make his cameo appearance in Sweeney Todd. Rob Nkemdiche, defensive tackle for the Arizona Cardinals, will get into full costume and makeup for the haunting show.
"Robert Nkemdiche is a special player on the field but not many people know he is also a talented musician and performer," said Mark Mettes, President & CEO of the Herberger Theater. "We could not be more excited to combine the audiences of Arizona sports and theater for such an amazing production."
