Local News

URBANA — It’s a musical put on a by a high school, but it’s not your average show tunes. Urbana High School students will perform Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

The show’s narrative is dark. It’s a cast of 24 students with 20 more of them in its technology crew.

The play’s director says the technology in the play is challenging, but stretching his students is exactly what he had in mind. There’s one technical piece that they’re excited about.

“It goes to so many different locations within a single song. There’s a lot of stuff that has happened with that,” says Tim Broeker.
