BRECKENRIDGE — October has arrived and the countdown to Halloween has begun, so get in the mood with Breckenridge Backstage Theatre’s production of with “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.”

In the award-winning musical by Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to 19th century London seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. 

The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, the proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barbershop. Mrs. Lovett’s luck shifts when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up.
