In the original story, a barber unjustly imprisoned by a corrupt judge, Sweeney returns to 19th century London after fifteen years to take his revenge on the man who took him from his wife and young daughter. Todd’s need for vengeance becomes indiscriminately murderous (and profitable) when he partners with the unscrupulous Mrs. Lovett and opens his new barber practice above her failing meat pie shop. With his busy straight razors and her new secret ingredient, their fame grows until Todd comes face to face with the judge to avenge his family.
Sweeney Todd stars Wilde Award Winner David Moan as Sweeney Todd, and Wilde Awards Nominee Sarah Briggs as Mrs. Lovett. The cast also includes: Billy Eric Robinson, Keith Kalinowski, Sebastian Gerstner, Emily Hadick, Dan Johnson, Emily Rogers, Logan Balcom, Nick Casella, James Fischer, Leah Fox, Bryana Hall, Angela Hench, Marlene Inman, Michael Jones, Chris Joseph, Gayle Martin, Dan Morrison, and Alexandra Reynolds.
The Encore Musical Theatre Company recently earned several Wilde Award Nominations (including Best Musical) for Assassins, nabbing 3 wins going to David Moan (Best Supporting Actor in a Musical), Tyler Driskill (Best Music Direction), and Tyler Chinn (Best Lighting) – all of whom will be participating in this production of Sweeney Todd, with the entire creative team, and the majority of the cast returning as well.
