Franklin High School to stage Sweeney Todd
 
Franklin High School will present Stephen Sondheim's Sweeney Todd on March 16, 17 and 18. The musical will be under the direction of Jeff Sams, with the pit orchestra directed by Josh Long. 
 
Showtimes will be 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, with a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday
 
An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth-century London, seeking vengeance against the judge who framed him in pursuit of 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 vengeance 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!
 
Franklin High School has never produced a show like Sweeney Todd, which many consider to be one of the greatest musicals in American theatre. FHS is producing the School Edition of this show, but it may be too intense for young students and children. 
 
Cast members include Dylan Gray, Logan Miller, Logan Clark, Rachael Kindred, Fiona Baker, Isaac Wagers, Alec Daves, Haleigh Sturgis, Matt Akers, Gavin Back, Hannah Cundiff, Tori Hamilton, Holly Thornton, Derek Stidham, Bryant Greer, Maddy Back, Maggie Biltz, Mekala Carberry, Aliza Fox, Hannah Hall, Addie Imundo, Rowan Karrick, Elise Loux, Elijah Loux, Kat Martin, Danny Metzger, Sadie Morris, Taylor Torrance, Colton Wolf, Kyliegh Wolfe, and Mady Young. 
 
Tickets will be $5 for students, $10 for adults, and $8 for seniors. 
 
Franklin High School is at 750 E. 4th St., Franklin.
