Auditions for "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street"
Possible callback date on July 12th
ABOUT THE PLAY:
One of the darkest musicals ever written, Sweeney Todd: A Musical Thriller is the unsettling tale of a Victorian-era barber who returns home to London after fifteen years of exile to take revenge on the corrupt judge who ruined his life. When revenge eludes him, Sweeney swears vengeance on the entire human race, murdering as many people as he can, while his business associate Mrs. Lovett bakes the bodies into meat pies and sells them to the unsuspecting public. Perhaps composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim's most perfect score, Sweeney Todd is lush, operatic, and full of soaring beauty, pitch-black comedy and stunning terror. It's one of the signal achievements of the American musical theater of the last fifty years.
Please prepare 16-32 bars each of an uptempo song and a ballad from a theatrical production. Also ask that you have a backup of each song type in case casting director would like to hear more.
