Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

July 29, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Hangar Mainstage OUTDOORS!
Our 47th season will include five live, in-person productions that will be performed at our outdoor, socially distanced performance space located on the Hangar grounds, behind the theatre and across from the dog park.

Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
July 22 – August 7
Book by Hugh Wheeler. Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Directed by Sanaz Ghajar.

The macabre tale of a wronged barber in 19th-century London who returns from exile with his blade, and a vengeance. He opens up a barbershop, conveniently located above a carnivorous meat-pie shop, and finds a memorable way to enact revenge. This award-winning musical tackles societal issues of power and class with dark humor and wit, and features one of the most stunning scores ever written for the stage.

Preview: Thursday, July 22

Tuesday Talkbacks: Every Tuesday, stay after the show to hear the cast and
creative team share insights and answer questions.
