Sweeney Todd

Sweeney Todd
Description:

On April 19-22, Lyndon State College’s Twilight Players will present Stephen Sondheim’s masterwork, Sweeney Todd. Billed as the first ‘cannibal musical’, Sweeney Todd features Sondheim’s masterpiece score, dark humor and lots of blood.

First produced in 1979, Sweeney Todd won several Tony and Drama Desk awards including Best Musical. Since then the show has been produced throughout the world and has enjoyed several successful revivals and a film adaptation by Tim Burton in 2007.

Set in 19th-century London, this thrilling musical tells the story of ousted barber Benjamin Barker, also known as Sweeney Todd, and his revenge on the scheming judge who exiled him for 15 years. When the bloodthirsty Sweeney joins forces with the failing pie shop proprietress Mrs. Lovett, the two introduce a new, carnal ingredient to Lovett’s meat pies that sends the people of London straight to the shop — and new victims to Sweeney’s barber chair.

Curtain times are 7:30 p.m. April 19-21 and 2 p.m. April 22. Admission is by donation (free to LSC and JSC students with I.D.). Tickets are available at the door. For more information or to reserve seating please call 802-626-3663.

Please note that Sweeney Todd contains adult material that may not be appropriate for young children. Please use discretion.

Time: 4/22/18 2:00pm - 4:30pm

HAIR: The Tribal Rock Musical

HAIR: The Tribal Rock Musical
Description:

Pentangle Arts presents Hair: The Original Tribal Rock Musical. HAIR is about a group of Vietnam-era youths in New York City’s East Village who band together as a TRIBE. Taking on the feel of an American Indian tribe, they question authority and the society they are living in and the war in Asia, exuberantly creating their own rite of passage. Among them are Claude and Berger; a pair of friends battling against Claude’s draft notice, and Sheila, who is in love with both, but her politically-active lifestyle leaves her little time to act on her feelings. Set to an infectiously energetic rock beat, the show wows audiences with songs like “Aquarius,” “Good Morning, Starshine,” “Hair,” “I Got Life,” and “Let The Sun Shine.” Exploring ideas of identity, community, global responsibility and peace, HAIR remains relevant as ever as it examines what it means to be a young person in a changing world.

Passing

Passing Vermont Arts 2018

This full-length performance piece will investigate the theme of dying in an uplifting, illuminating, multidisciplinary collage of dancers, musicians, a soundscape, and a sculptural set. The three movements of Passing will focus on the physical, emotional, and spiritual realms of dying. Passing is a powerful examination of what is passed on to us, what we leave behind, and how life continues. Far from being macabre or morbid, Passing will raise a healthy curiosity and an affirming joy in both living and passing on. This performance will be accompanied by an afternoon storytelling and movement workshop for members of the community.
