Sweeney Todd Auditions Dec. 12 & 13
Lincoln Community Playhouse invites actors to audition for Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street on December 12th and 13th from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at the Playhouse. Callbacks will be December 14th from 7:00-9:00 p.m. Auditionees can sign up for a one-hour time slot at lincolnplayhouse.com starting November 14th.
Actors should prepare a vocal solo of 32 bars of classic Broadway (after 1970) that showcases their range and acting prowess. Please bring sheet music. Accompanist provided. No a cappella solos. All other materials will be provided.
Actors must be at least 15 years old to audition. There will be a company meeting to hand out scripts on December 16th, with rehearsals starting January 9th. Performances are March 10-12, 17-19, 2023.
While she/her and he/him pronouns are used within the script, we invite gender non-confirming, genderqueer, transgender and non-binary performers to audition and to note roles they most identify with. We invite actors who are neurodiverse and actors of all abilities to participate.
We are seeking performers of all races and ethnicities. Although Johanna and young Lucy are at times described as “pale” and “yellow haired” in the materials, we do not need to take this to mean “white” and “blonde.” We will consider any race or ethnicity for all roles. If you have any questions or concerns or are in need of an accommodation, please do let us know.
Accents: Not all characters will require an accent. We will have some flexibility on what accents are utilized and will make final accent decisions after casting is complete. Any accents for the production will be taught and coached during the rehearsal process. If you would like to perform your audition piece or callback excerpt in an accent, please feel free!
Director and Choreographer is Ann Marie Pollard. Ashley Daily is music director, with scenic design by Douglas Clarke, lighting design by Obadiah Harvey, costume design by Maralee Maldavs, and stage management by Barb Armstead.
