ANNOUNCING SEASON SIX, OUR 2018-19 CLASSES, CAMPS & SHOWS

SWEENEY TODD (School Edition) | Teen Company – Fall 2019

Sweeney Todd has become a bloody, worldwide success since being awarded eight Tony Awards (including Best Musical), for its Broadway premiere and has now been adapted for high school performers in Sweeney Todd School Edition. Stephen Sondheim’s and Hugh Wheeler’s (A Little Night Music, Pacific Overtures) tasty, thrilling, theatrical treat has simultaneously shocked, awed and delighted audiences across the world.

An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth-century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett’s luck sharply shifts when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up… and the carnage has only just begun!

This special School Edition has been masterfully adapted, working directly with Mr. Sondheim to retain the dark wit and grand scope of the original work, with a few lyric and key changes to facilitate high school productions. At the show’s core is a challenging score of epic proportion with two tasty tour-de-force roles in Sweeney and his comic female accomplice, Mrs. Lovett. Sweeney Todd School Edition is sure to be the highlight of any high school’s season.

Some roles may be double-cast, which would mean some students would have both a ‘lead role’ track and an ensemble track.  Stay tuned for specific information about which performances will include your child’s lead role track if applicable.

PREREQUISITE & CASTING INFO:  No audition is necessary.  We do “try-on”-style casting, with an assessment of acting, singing & dancing skills on the first day.  We assign roles to our students based on their goals and our assessment of how best to challenge them and continue to develop their skills.  One of our philosophical pillars is “ensemble” – we try to give every child as much stage time as possible, and make strong use of students in secondary or chorus roles throughout the show.

CLASS SIZE:  Teen Company enrollment is limited to 28 students. This class almost always fills, so enroll early to ensure your place.  In our larger programs, some or all roles are double-cast; however, usually all students perform in all of the shows. We do reserve the right to change the number of performances based on the final enrollment and casting.
