Rock River Repertory Theatre Company will be holding open auditions for the Tony Award winning musical SWEENEY TODD. Attend this dark and witty tale of love, London, murder and revenge. SWEENEY TODD has become a bloody, worldwide success since being awarded 8 Tony's, one of them for Best Musical, for its Broadway premiere. Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler (A Little Night Music, Pacific Overtures) crafted a tasty, thrilling, theatrical treat with Sweeney Todd that has simultaneously shocked, awed, and delighted audiences across the world. An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to 19th 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!
