Click here for the Sweeney Todd virtual program.

The macabre tale of a wronged barber in 19th-century London who returns from exile with his blade, and a vengeance. He opens up a barbershop, conveniently located above a carnivorous meat-pie shop, and finds a memorable way to enact revenge. This award-winning musical tackles societal issues of power and class with dark humor and wit, and features one of the most stunning scores ever written for the stage.

CONTENT WARNING: Sweeney Todd contains theatrical depictions of violence, death, and physical abuse.

Please Note: There will now be one empty chair between parties. If a performance appears full or there is not the correct number of seats in a pod that you need, please e-mail boxoffice@hangartheatre.org or call 607.273.2787 M-F 12-4 to purchase.

Seats in Row A may be in the “blood splash zone”!

We have reduced social distancing in the outdoor performance space to one empty chair between parties to reflect current CDC guidelines for all performances, expanding seating availability.
