Titus Andronicus
By William Shakespeare

After ten long years of fighting a war against the Goths, Roman general TITUS ANDRONICUS returns home with the bodies of his two sons and a crew of important war prisoners, including Tamora (queen of the Goths), her sons (Demetrius and Chiron) and Aaron the Moor. Before he places his slain sons in the Andronicus family tomb, Titus must sacrifice Tamora's eldest son in order to appease the spirits of his dead children.

Sweeney Todd: School Edition

Music and Lyrics By Stephen Sondheim

Book by Hugh Wheeler

Based on an adaptation by Christopher Bond

An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to 19th century London seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice. 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, and the carnage has only just begun!

Show Dates:

August 14 & 21 @ 7pm

August 16 & 23 @ 2pm
