Attend this dark and witty tale of London, love, murder, and revenge. (Adapted for High School Performers)
Sweeney Todd has become a bloody, worldwide success since being awarded 8 TONY's (including Best Musical), for its Broadway premiere and has now been adapted for high school performers in Sweeney Todd School Edition. Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler (A Little Night Music, Pacific Overtures) crafted a tasty, thrilling, theatrical treat that has simultaneously shocked, awed, and delighted audiences across the world.
An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to 19th century London seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up, and the carnage has only just begun!Click HERE to sign up for an audition

There is no need to prepare anything for the auditions. Auditions consist of cold reads from the script -
including a song and dance. You will be taught the song and dance at the audition.
However - we are holding an Audition Workshop for those who would like a head start.
**Workshop attendance does not guarantee actors a part in the show and it is not required.
But it will give you a step up on the audition.
Thursday, December 3rd - 6-8:00pm
