An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth 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, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply 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... and the carnage has only just begun!

Silent Sky | March 2025 | Bucyrus Little Theatre

March 2025 | Silent Sky

Directed by Karellyn Sterling, Written by Lauren Gunderson

Produced in arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.


When Henrietta Leavitt begins work at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, she isn’t allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. Instead, she joins a group of women “computers,” charting the stars for a renowned astronomer who calculates projects in “girl hours” and has no time for the women’s probing theories. As Henrietta, in her free time, attempts to measure the light and distance of stars, she must also take measure of her life on Earth, trying to balance her dedication to science with family obligations and the possibility of love. The true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, when women’s ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them.


 

Schoolhouse Rock Live! | June 2025 | Bucyrus Little Theatre

June 2025 | Schoolhouse Rock Live!

Directed by Martha Tidball; From the Series Created by George Newall and Tom Yohe; Based on an Idea by David McCall; Book by Scott Ferguson, George Keating, and Kyle Hall; Music and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, Bob Dorough, Dave Frishberg, Kathy Mandry, George Newall, and Tom Yohe

Presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI)


A pop culture phenomenon comes to the musical stage in Schoolhouse Rock Live! The story follows Tom, a nerve-wracked school teacher who is nervous about his first day of teaching. He tries to relax by watching TV, when various characters representing facets of his personality emerge from the set and show him how to win his students over with imagination and music, through such songs as "Just a Bill," "Lolly, Lolly, Lolly" and "Conjunction Junction."
