Classic Acts presents Stephen Sondheim’s popular musical, “Sweeney Todd,” on Aug. 9, 10 and 11 at the PACE Center in Parker.
Each year, Classic Acts, a resident children’s theater for the PACE Center, presents an adult/teen mentoring program, producing a well-known play with a cast of professional and community adult actors and some in their late teens.
This tale of the Demon Barber of Fleet Street tells of a barber who is unjustly sent to prison in Australia by an unscrupulous judge who desires Todd’s wife and raises his daughter. Todd, bent on revenge, schemes with Mrs. Lovett to kill people and bake them in meat pies to sell in Mrs. Lovett’s shop.
Daid Kincannon plays Todd and Leslie Bennett plays Mrs. Lovett in the production directed by David Truhler, with Sam Sartore as music director. Other cast members include Anna Lansdon, Zack Nick, Robert Larson, David Bove, Jason Hickman and Ryan Fletcher.
