In just one week, the curtain will go up on their production of “Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.”

Performances of the musical thriller will take place December 5, 6, 7, and 12, 13, 14 at the VMHS Theater, located at 700 E. Mile 2 Road (at the corner of Mile 2 Road and Mayberry).

The musical thriller is set in 19th century England and tells the story of Benjamin Barker, aka Sweeney Todd. After being released from prison, the falsely accused man opens a barbershop above the pie shop of Ms. Lovett. The two team up in a plot for revenge against those who have done them wrong and hurt loved ones.

The VMHS Harlequins have a growing reputation for quality stage productions. Their work in UIL One Act Play competitions has earned them district championships for six years in a row, first place at regional competitions two years in a row and state competition qualification the past two years.
