OPEN AUDITIONS FOR THE SIERRA STAGES SUMMER 2020 PRODUCTION OF
STEPHEN SONDHEIM’S “SWEENEY TODD, THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET”
Sierra Stages is pleased to announce open auditions for its summer 2020 production of “Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler, playing from July 16, 2020 through August 8, 2020 at the historic Nevada Theatre in Nevada City. The director is Sharon Winegar and music director is Ken Getz.
Winner of eight Tony® Awards including Best Musical, “Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street” is an indisputable masterpiece. Set in 19th century London and laced with brilliant wit, diabolical humor and extraordinary music, this heart-pounding musical thriller tells the tale of an unjustly exiled barber and his quest to avenge the wrongs done to him and his family by a lecherous judge. Aided by the resourceful pie shop proprietress Mrs. Lovett, Sweeney exacts his sweet, razor-sharp revenge.
There are two opportunities to audition: Thursday, October 17 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Saturday, October 19 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Auditions on both dates are at the Sierra Stages Rehearsal Studio, 828 West Main Street, Grass Valley, CA 95945.
