ABOUT THE PLAY:
Love! Lust! Revenge!
Composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim’s musical masterpiece, Sweeney Todd is lush, operatic, full of soaring beauty, pitch-black comedy and stunning terror. Winner of 8 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, it is one of the signal achievements of the American musical theater of the last fifty years. A Musical Thriller, Sweeney Todd tells the unsettling tale of a Victorian-era barber who returns home to London after fifteen years of exile to take revenge on the corrupt judge who ruined his life. When revenge eludes him, Sweeney swears vengeance on the entire human race, murdering as many people as he can, while his business associate, Mrs. Lovett, bakes the victims into meat pies and sells them to the unsuspecting public who can’t seem to get enough of her tasty fare. The Provincetown Theater is proud to present this 40th anniversary production.

2019 SUMMER THEMES:
July 13: Worship
Were you the worshiped or the worshiper? From obsession with money, a love-interest or a job — to gods, gurus and movie stars — what and why we praise the things we do is a very personal story. What’s yours??
July 27: Risk
Was it your heart, money, the future – or someone’s life? Whatever you bet on, how did it payoff? Tell us what was at risk – and why you did it. What might’ve happened it you’d never taken the plunge?
August 10: Fashion
Trends, crazes, modes and fads – smart, chic, hip, happening, square, old-school, inappropriate. Cultural appropriation as fashion?! Was your bold fashion choice fierce or a faux pas? Does fashion intimidate, thrill or help identify you? Tell us the story that defined your relationship with fashion!
August 24: Let Down
Anticipation, expectation and disappointment usually go hand in hand. What or who did you put your hopes and dreams into? Did they let you down easy, or did you let them down? Maybe you’ll tell about the time you let down your hair and let it all hang out! Please do!

It’s A Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play

Directed by David Drake | Play by Joe Landry
It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play is based on the classic holiday movie with a clever twist thrown in: the story is staged as a live radio broadcast. Actors portray numerous characters, and sound effects are done through Foley artists. It’s a Wonderful Life is about the life of George Bailey, a generous and well-meaning man who has become too downcast and tired to continue living. It will take help from a lovable angel to show George what life would be like if he wasn’t born for George to have a change of heart and understand the true spirit of the holidays.
