What a difference a season makes. This fall, Harlandale High School Theatre Arts students performed “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.” The two-and-a-half hour musical thriller centers around a wrongfully accused murderer who seeks revenge in the death of his wife. It took nearly 70 people to put on the production, from the cast to the crew to the ushers, but it was well worth it. Theatre Director Vanessa Garcia said about 900 people, both children and adults, watched one of their three performances November 29–December 1.
The theatre department will make a drastic swing come spring. Their UIL competition show will be “Harvey.” It is the story of a nice, middle-aged man who walks around with an invisible friend – a 6-foot rabbit.
