SMC Stages ‘Sweeney Todd’ From May 30 To June 8:

The Santa Monica College Theatre Arts and Music Departments are pleased to present “Sweeney Todd” May 30-June 8 at the Theatre Arts Main Stage on the SMC main campus, 1900 Pico Boulevard, Santa Monica.

In “Sweeney Todd,” times are hard in 1846 London and one must make ends ‘meat.’ So, businesswoman Nellie Lovett adds something extra to the lovely pies she peddles from her shop on Fleet Street. The secret ingredient? Freshly murdered victims of her partner-in-crime, Benjamin Barker, better known as Sweeney Todd.

The production featuring Stephen Sondheim’s Tony award-winning music and lyrics is directed by Terrin Adair-Lynch, with music direction by Gary Gray and choreography by Lauren Blair.

Please note: This theatrical performance contains adult subject matter, and may not be suitable for younger audiences.

Show times are 8 p.m. on Friday, May 30 and June 6, and Saturday, May 31 and June 7. Matinees are at 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 1, and on Saturday, June 7, and Sunday, June 8. A preview is scheduled at 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 29.

Advance tickets range from $17 to $20 ($10 for preview), plus a service charge, and can be purchased by going to www.smc.edu/eventsinfo or by calling (310) 434-4319 or (310) 434-3000 Monday through Friday. Tickets are $3 higher at the door before performances. Parking is free on Friday evenings and weekends.
