Amelia Musical Playhouse presents Stephen Sondheim’s Tony award-winning musical Sweeney Todd on October 9, 10, 11, 17, 18, 24, 25, 31,and November 1, at 7:30 p.m. This chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous “ barber-ism” and culinary crime tells the infamous tale of the unjustly exiled barber who returns to 19th-century London seeking revenge against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. His thirst for blood soon expands to include his unfortunate customers, and the resourceful proprietress of the pie shop downstairs soon has the people of London lining up in droves with her mysterious new meat pie recipe! Unlike the movie version, violence is artfully suggested.

Tickets are $20 and are available at the theatre, on the Web site at, or by calling the box office at (904) 277-3455. Amelia Musical Playhouse is located at 1955 Island Walkway in Fernandina Beach.
