Upper Schoolers Busy Rehearsing "Sweeney Todd"

A dedicated group of Upper School students has been busy rehearsing for this year’s spring musical, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, which is being directed by MBS faculty member Jim Ruttman.

Featuring music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by Hugh Wheeler, the award-winning musical thriller promises razor-sharp writing, a spine-tingling score and a ride through the twisted minds of its infamous characters.

Set in Victorian London, Sweeney Todd is an unjustly exiled barber who returns to London years later to seek revenge on the judge who framed him and on those who made him suffer and lose his beloved family. He opens a barber shop connected to Mrs. Lovett’s meat pie shop and initiates his crime rampage.
