Join Saddleworth Musical Society as they tell the infamous tale of Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, who returns to 19th century London seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge Turpin, who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice.
Mrs. Lovett's luck changes when Todd's tonsorial activities inspires her to alter her pie recipé, which has the people of London lining up, and so the story unfolds.
