Need a haircut? Head for the high school the weekend of March 29-31. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a performance of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

The school version of Stephen Sondheim’s musical takes place at 7:00 on Friday and Saturday, and at 2:00 on Sunday. Tickets are $10 for adults ($12 at the door) and $7 for students, senior citizens, and children under 12 ($10 at the door). Advance tickets are available by emailing music teacher and play director Chad Flynn at or calling 973-697-3535 x5860.

“This is an extremely difficult musical for high school students because of the challenging music and mature themes throughout the show,” noted Flynn. “JTHS’s students are certainly more than capable of tackling this behemoth, and the cast is doing an excellent job at growing these characters to life.”

The show observes the struggle between love and revenge, challenging viewers to face their own demons.
