“Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” Auditions

Actor Auditons for Musical Thriller

Sweeney Todd Auditions

Auditions are being held for “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” in Springfield, MI on September 5th and 6th. ‘Sweeney Todd’ is the rare instances of a musical thriller, Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s chilling, suspenseful, heart-pounding masterpiece of murderous barber-ism and culinary crime telling the infamous tale of the unjustly exiled barber who returns to 19th century London seeking revenge against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. His thirst for blood soon expands to include his unfortunate customers, and the resourceful proprietress of the pie shop downstairs soon has the people of London lining up in droves with her mysterious new meat pie recipe! Sophisticated, macabre, visceral and uncompromising, ‘Sweeney Todd’ nevertheless has a great sense of fun, mixing intense drama with howlingly funny moments of dark humor; audiences find themselves laughing hysterically one moment and gasping in surprise the next.
