Appalachian Equality Chorus presents
Sing-Along Benefit: Sweeney Todd
Our latest sing-along collaboration with the Appalachian Equality Chorus (benefiting Bryant’s Bridge) is a delicious spooky season treat, giving Stephen Sondheim’s macabre fan-favorite musical the Tim Burton treatment!
Evil Judge Turpin (Alan Rickman) lusts for the beautiful wife of a London barber (Johnny Depp) and transports him to Australia for a crime he did not commit. Returning after 15 years and calling himself Sweeney Todd, the now-mad man vows revenge, applying his razor to unlucky customers and shuttling the bodies down to Mrs. Lovett (Helena Bonham Carter), who uses them in her meat-pie shop. Though many fall to his blade, he will not be satisfied until he slits Turpin’s throat.
“Distinguished, hypnotic, brilliantly executed and positively electrifying.” – Rex Reed
