Opening night of "Sweeney Todd," presented by the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival, will be Friday, June 15.
Wilson Borough native Dee Roscioli will play Mrs. Lovett.
Roscioli graduated from Wilson Area High School and . She played Elphaba (the green witch) in "Wicked" on Broadway.
I had the opportunity to briefly meet her in New York this spring and hear her sing last Saturday at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival's Gala. She is extraordinary!
