Tickets for Center Theatre Players’ 'Sweeney Todd' are on sale now

Tickets are on sale for the Center Theatre Players production of "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” which will be presented at 7:30 p.m Thursday, July 24; Friday July 25; and Saturday, July 26; in the auditorium of the Penn State Beaver Student Union Building.

Directed by Penn State alumna Sandy Reigel, the show is part of the Beaver campus Brodhead Cultural Center’s 38th summer season of programming and is cosponsored by a gift from Harper & Hodge. This Tony Award-winning musical thriller is considered to be composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim's masterpiece. Based on the infamous 19th century English legend, Sweeney Todd is a barber bent on murderous vengeance against a corrupt judge. Todd’s bloody revenge includes a cutthroat partnership with Mrs. Lovett, an enterprising businesswoman who produces the most uniquely-flavored meat pies in London. The play’s dark humor, haunting music and menacing atmosphere create an unforgettable theatrical experience. Due to some scenes of violence, the play is recommended for mature audiences.

Tickets are $15. Advance ticket sales are recommended by calling 724-773-3610 and using a Visa or MasterCard. Those purchasing tickets in person should come to Suite 201, Ross Administration Building at Beaver campus, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
