When: Tuesday March 26th beginning at 5:00 PM by appointment only
Where: The Seacoast Repertory Theatre, 125 Bow Street Portsmouth NH
What: Casting for Sweeney Todd
Johanna Barker - (Soprano, character age: 18 to 20’s) An alluring, beautiful young but simple woman. Todd's daughter, but claimed by Judge Turpin as his own ward. Falls in love with Anthony and seeks refuge through him. Comic timing a plus.
Beggar Woman / Lucy Barker - (Soprano, character age: 35 to 50) A mad crone with a filthy tongue whose interjections go unheeded. Not right in the head. She is eventually revealed to be Lucy Barker, the wife of Sweeney Todd. Broken by life, we learn that she has descended in health and soundness of mind as a result of having her life destroyed by the Judge. She dimly remembers her life as Lucy, but has been thoroughly transformed by her poverty, her mistreatment, and her hopelessness.
Ensemble - Gravediggers, Bird Seller, Customers, Policemen, townsfolk, lunatics. Also Jonas Fogg, seen briefly in the second act as the keeper in charge of the lunatic asylum at Bedlam. All vocal types and age ranges welcome.
