Open Auditions for Sweeney Todd
union / non-union
auditions by appointment only 12/4 & 12/5 in Lancaster PA
Performers of all ethnic and racial backgrounds are encouraged to attend
Seeking to following roles:
Sweeney Todd / Benjamin Barker:
Bass/Baritone, 40s. A man consumed by revenge after his wife is kidnapped and raped, and he is wrongly convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment. Darkly cynical.
Mrs. Nellie Lovett:
Alto/Mezzo, Cockney Accent, moves well, 40s. An amoral, pragmatic seller of meat pies – takes practicality to a ridiculous level. She lusts after Todd. A very high energy role.
Soprano, 18. Benjamin Barker’s daughter, a ward of Judge Turpin. Beautiful and pure-hearted.
Tenor, 20s. A good natured, optimistic & naive young sailor.
Begger Woman / Lucy Barker:
Soprano, Late 30s. Barker’s wife, who he believes to be dead. Schizophrenic personality ranging from pathetic to crudely suggestive.
Bass/Baritone, Early 50s. A lustful, immoral, power hungry man. Twists the law to suit him.
Tenor, Late 40s. Judge Turpin’s partner in crime. “A bully with a thin veneer of gentility”.
Tenor, 30s. A phony mountebank who claims to be “the king of the barbers, the barber of kings.” A very high tenor role that can also be played by a soprano in drag.
Tenor, 18. Pirelli’s young, simple, but kind-hearted drum-beating assistant.
