CLARK, NJ - On March 22, 23 and 24  at 7 p.m. Arthur L. Johnson High School will present Sweeney Todd, a musical thriller by Stephen Sondheim.

Since its Broadway premiere in 1979, Sweeney Todd has been thrilling and chilling audiences and now the Demon Barber of Fleet Street is coming to ALJ.  Sweeney Todd tells the story of a barber who returns to London after a 15-year incarceration to seek revenge on those who wrongfully put him away.

“I could not be more proud of these extremely talented young performers as they tackle Stephen Sondheim’s haunting and challenging score,” said Director Peter Nevargic.

According to school officials, art teacher, Brad Terhune has designed an impressive multi-level set. Music will be performed by a 25-piece orchestra predominately comprised of ALJ musicians. The cast includes performers of all grade levels, especially ALJ seniors, Anthony Whitman, Emma Knutson, Katlyn Ashley, Gabby Smith, John Gregorio and Ryan Rutano in their farewell performances.

“This production of Sweeney Todd is a truly collaborative effort, bringing together ALJ’s Drama, Art and Music departments, including many alumni, who have come back to be a part of this once in a lifetime theatrical event,” said Nevargic.

“Don’t miss Sweeney Todd, which promises to be, “one of the most exciting musicals ever presented on the ALJ stage.” Nevargic emphasized.
