The Phoenix Stage Company in Naugatuck has been having a fantastic run of their production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street which features Naugatuck High School senior Troy Bond. Their entire production has been sold out! The final show dates are September 27 & 28, 2013 at 8:00 pm.

Synopsis:

The rare instance of a musical thriller, Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous barber-ism and culinary crime tells the infamous tale of the unjustly exiled barber who returns to 19th century London seeking revenge against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife.

His thirst for blood soon expands to include his unfortunate customers, and the resourceful proprietress of the pie shop downstairs soon has the people of London lining up in droves with her mysterious new meat pie recipe!
