Center and Insomniac Theatre Company are teaming up to bring you one of the most requested shows we've ever had. Sondheim's musical thriller is a masterpiece that mixes comedy, drama and suspense to create one of the most meaningful scores imaginable. Follow Sweeney Todd on his path of revenge as he brings Mrs. Lovett, Tobie, Anthony and Joanna along the way. With the Ocala Symphony Orchestra's Maestro Matthew Wardell leading the music, and Insomniac Theatre's creative mastermind Chad Taylor at the helm, this is one show you won't want to miss!


One of the darkest musicals ever written, Sweeney Todd: A Musical Thriller is the unsettling tale of a Victorian-era barber who returns home to London after fifteen years of exile to take revenge on the corrupt judge who ruined his life. When revenge eludes him, Sweeney swears vengeance on the entire human race, murdering as many people as he can, while his business associate Mrs. Lovett bakes the bodies into meat pies and sells them to the unsuspecting public. Perhaps composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim’s most perfect score, Sweeney Todd is lush, operatic, and full of soaring beauty, pitch-black comedy and stunning terror. It’s one of the signal achievements of the American musical theater of the last fifty years.
