Theater Auditions in New Hampshire for “Sweeney Todd”

07/11/2022

The Seacoast Repertory Theater is holding auditions for “Sweeney Todd.”

The theater is located in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Seacoast Repertory Theatre in Portsmouth, NH, is currently accepting submissions for its upcoming production of Sweeney Todd.  The theater and the shows run year round with different shows produced during the season. The story of “Sweeney Todd” was made into a movie which starred Johnny Depp, as the main character of Sweeney Todd and Helena Bonhan Carter.

The twisted story revolves around a barber and an evil judge. Judge Turpin, who was played by Alan Rickman in the film, wanted a woman…badly. The woman he wanted was married to a barber, played by Depp. The judge removed the barber by having him imprisoned for something he did not do. On his release, the barber will change his name to Sweeney Todd in order to exact his revenge on all. His weapon of choice is a barbers razor, and he uses it while in a very twisted state, finds a woman who will take in the bodies and actually make pies out of them.
