Take a trip down the dark, twisting alleyways of Victorian England in Tree House Youth Theatre’s next musical.

The award-winning theatre company will present Sweeney Todd, Demon Barber of Fleet Street starting from Thursday, May 29, at the Scott Block in downtown Red Deer. The deliciously dark musical thriller by Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler is about a devilish collaboration between Mrs. Lovett, the meat pie maker, and the barber Todd — who discovers the best revenge is serving his enemies up in steaming hot pastry.

“While the story is gory, ours isn’t,” promises the Tree House production team.

Seating is limited for the stylized performances that will include music by the Cut-Throat Orchestra, and feature a black-and-white set inspired by Victorian children’s book illustrations, said director Matt Gould.

Sweeney Todd runs May 29, 30, 31 and June 6, 7, and 8 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 through www.treehouseyouththeatre.ca.
