One of the darkest musicals ever written, Sweeney Todd: A Musical Thriller is the unsettling tale of a Victorian-era barber who returns home to London after fifteen years of exile to take revenge on the corrupt judge who ruined his life. When revenge eludes him, Sweeney swears vengeance on the entire human race, murdering as many people as he can. Perhaps composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim’s most perfect score, Sweeney Todd is lush, operatic, and full of soaring beauty, pitch-black comedy and stunning terror. It’s one of the single greatest achievements of American musical theater of the last fifty years. The cast of the Teachers’ Musical Society is made up primarily of primary and secondary teachers and, over time, the group has grown into one of the leading musical societies in Ireland. It has won numerous awards at the Waterford International Festival of Light Opera as well as from the Association of Irish Musical Societies (AIMS). TMS welcomes back award winning director Eoin Cannon, & the superbly talented Dermot O’Callaghan as musical director.
Running time (approximate): 2 hours and 30 minutes
