Camelot Theatre celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, and what better way to do that is to put on the biggest, most complex musical in its history: “Sweeney Todd”.

Stephen Sondheim wrote the music and lyrics for “Sweeney Todd” back in the seventies. It was based on a penny dreadful story called “The String of Pearls,” which dates back to 1846. Sweeney has been ranked by many as Sondheim’s best.
