Leicester’s Curve theatre is looking for locals to cast in their highly anticipated community production of Sweeney Todd.
The show, which will be performed from 30th July to 11th August, follows the sell-out success of previous community productions Oliver! and West Side Story. Sweeney Todd is a Stephen Sondheim musical that tells the dark story of Sweeney Todd the murderous barber of Fleet Street.
Talking about what he is looking for director, Paul Kerryson said, ‘Casting for Curve community productions has always been really exciting and in the past we have been overwhelmed by the huge amount of local talent coming through our doors.
‘Sweeney Todd is a high-energy show, which requires strong lead roles and a solid ensemble. This production has already received a huge amount of interest from budding local performers so I am confident we will once again be spoilt for choice and be able to put together an excellent cast who will deliver a fantastic performance.
‘This year there are some great parts on offer. We are particularly looking for some really strong singers. Sweeney Todd has some brilliant musical numbers so we want people who will really be able to belt out those tunes!’
If you would like to apply to be in the production you need to head over to www.curveonline.co.uk and fill out the application form. Auditions will be taking place over the next few weeks so get your application in as soon as possible if you’re interested. Demand is expected to be high.
