Peninsula Youth Theatre is scheduled to perform Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” Thursday through Sunday at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro St.

“Sweeney Todd” tells the tale of a man who lost everything when wrongfully exiled from his home. However, when he returns, he is obsessed with getting revenge upon those who have wronged him. The musical won eight Tony Awards in 1979, including Best Musical.
