Production Description

Casting "Sweeney Todd." Synopsis: "Sweeney Todd" is an infamous tale of British folklore about an unjustly exiled barber who 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!

Company Statement

This provocative, new production allows the audience a glimpse inside the psychosis of a man driven to the edge when he loses everything. A new vision of a modern classic reimagined and directed by WPPAC Artistic Director Jeremy Quinn; the script and score of this production will not be altered in any way but the time and setting have been adjusted, allowing for the story to be told in a different way. Theatre’s casting note: “Because of the short, intense rehearsal schedule, we are open and interested in seeing performers who have done the show before. But it is not a requirement.”
