Leawood Stage Company Presents a Musical Thriller “Sweeney Todd”
The Leawood Stage Company is proud to present the Broadway musical thriller Sweeney Todd September 29, 30 & October 1 at 7:30 pm and October 2 at 2:00 pm inside the Lodge at Ironwoods Park, 14701 Mission Road, Leawood, KS 66224.

Sweeney Todd has become a bloody, worldwide success winning 8 Tony’s, including Best Musical. With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book Hugh Wheeler (A Little Night Music) they have crafted a thrilling, theatrical treat with Sweeney Todd that has simultaneously shocked, awed, and delighted audiences across the world.

The Leawood Stage Company’s 2016 season concludes in the fall with the infamous tale of Sweeney Todd based on “The String of Pearls”. Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to London seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge 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 sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up, and the carnage has only just begun!

We welcome Tiffany Schweigert to her LSC debut. Tiffany is no stranger to theater patrons across the Kansas City area as she has directed in many local theaters including her own productions with She & Her.

Sweeney Todd: Matt Richardson
Mrs. Lovett: Cori Anne Weber
