    Auditions - Sweeney Todd

    ATTEND THE TALE OF SWEENEY TODD................ THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET PLEASE EMAIL INFO@BROOKSIDETHEATRE.COM TO BOOK YOUR AUDITION PLACE Stage One Theatre Company in association with the Brookside Theatre are auditioning for all principal and company roles for their upcoming production of the musical, SWEENEY TODD – THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and libretto by Hugh Wheeler. ... Sondheim's brooding musical thriller is filled with humour, wit and scary delights. It also boasts a magnificent score. From its first UK performance in London in 1980 to the stunning 2007 screen adaptation by Tim Burton, this tale of obsession and vengeance has enraptured audiences. Set in Victorian London, the musical depicts Sweeney Todd's murderous quest for justice and retribution aided and abetted by the outrageous ideas of the pie-shop owner, Mrs Lovett. The production will run for 2 weeks from Thurs 12th – Sat 21st September 2013 on Thurs, Fri & Sat evenings with a Saturday matinee. Rehearsals will be held on Monday & Wednesday evenings and Sunday daytimes and will commence at the end of July. Auditions will be held on Thursday 27th June at 7.30pm at the Brookside Theatre, Romford CHARACTER DESCRIPTIONS Sweeney Todd/Benjamin Barker Bass-Baritone - Playing age 40-50 Morose and brooding, a barber by profession who returned to London (after fifteen years of unjust incarceration in an Australian penal colony) to seek revenge first on the corrupt judge who sent him there, and then simply on whoever proves unfortunate enough to end up in his shop. Mrs. Lovett Contralto/ Mezzo-soprano - Playing age 35-50 A cheery and chatty but wholly amoral restaurateur whose business has become run down due to a scarcity of meat and who would like to be more than a landlady to Mr. Todd. Anthony Hope Tenor - Playing age 20-30 A young, naïve sailor who has rescued Todd and falls in love with Johanna Barker. Johanna Barker Lyric Soprano - Playing age 16-21 Todd's beautiful young daughter, claimed by Judge Turpin as his own ward. Judge Turpin Bass / Bass-Baritone - Playing age 45-65 A corrupt and depraved judiciary official who twists the system to serve his own ends and who has become infatuated by Johanna as she has matured. Tobias Ragg Tenor - Playing age 13-15 A simple young lad who works first for Pirelli, and then for Mrs. Lovett, but does not trust Todd. Beadle Bamford Tenor - Playing age 45 - 60 Turpin's right-hand man and accomplice to his dirty deeds. Beggar Woman/Lucy Barker Soprano - Playing age 35-50 A mad crone with a filthy tongue whose interjections go unheeded, but who is eventually revealed to be Lucy Barker, the wife of Benjamin Barker. Adolfo Pirelli/Danny O'Higgins Tenor - Playing age 30-60 An Irish charlatan and former employee of Benjamin Barker's who has since developed a public persona as a flashy, Italian barber; he attempts to blackmail Todd whom he ultimately recognizes from his youth.
