Sunday, April 27: Sweeney Todd. 7:30 p.m. Longmont Theatre Company, 513 Main St., 303-772-5200.

When a wrongfully exiled barber, Benjamin Barker, returns to 19th century London to seek revenge on the judge who framed him, his thirst for blood grows to include some of his unfortunate customers. His partner, Mrs. Lovett, who owns the pie shop downstairs, resourcefully assists Barker and has people flocking to her store to try the new mysterious meat pie. This frightening tale of Sweeney Todd comes alive in an eerie musical.
