Sweeney Todd Debuts at ULM
Sweeney Todd has won over 30 awards including the the Tony Award for Best Musical

The Visual and Performing Arts program at the University of Louisiana at Monroe's opening night of Sweeney Todd is Thursday October 28th at 7:30 P.M.  The play will be shown Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night.

ULM's fall semester play is set to have big sets, big choral scenes, a great orchestra, and lots of blood. The all student cast will be performing Sweeney Todd on a set largely borrowed from the New Orleans Opera. Sweeney Todd is a musical set in England during the 1900's that focusing on a barber seeking revenge after a 15 year exile. The musical's gory elements fall right in place with the Halloween season.

Mark Clark, the director of this play, describes Sweeney Todd as, "a tremendous show, it's complex with so much going on in it." He ensures that this play has its fair share of twists and turns.

General admission to the show is $15 while students can get in for free with their ULM IDs. More information on the event can be found here.
