NOTE: Most of the roles are already filled with actors who were cast for our summer 2020 production which was canceled because of the COVID-19 lockdown. At these auditions, we need to fill the role of Beadle Bamford, as well as several ensemble roles. We will consider actors of any gender for the role of Beadle Bamford, and we need singers of any gender for the ensemble.

A barber who was unjustly imprisoned for years by a corrupt judge returns to England bent on revenge — a revenge that turns indiscriminately murderous, leading his resourceful accomplice, Mrs. Lovett, to bake the victims into meat pies. Most people agree it's the best musical of all time. It's certainly among the most challenging, musically and dramatically.

Auditions will take place at:

Sierra Stages Rehearsal Studio at Peace Lutheran Church

?828 W. Main St, Grass Valley, CA 95945 (map)

Sierra Stages' studio is on the ground floor beneath the church's Fellowship Center. Once in the church's parking lot, follow the building around to the right. Go past the church's main doors, and look for stairs and a ramp leading down to a below-grade outdoor "plaza". Sierra Stages' door is in that concrete area.

COVID-19 SAFETY: ALL ACTORS AND ALL PRODUCTION STAFF FOR SWEENEY TODD MUST BE FULLY VACCINATED FOR COVID-19. IF YOU ARE NOT FULLY VACCINATED AND WISH TO AUDITION, PLEASE CONTACT US AT AUDITIONS@SIERRASTAGES.ORG.

Callbacks: We do not anticipate the need for callback auditions at this time. Our intent is to cast the remaining roles based on the preliminary audition. If we need more time with a particular actor, we'll work that out on an individual basis.

NOTE: All roles in SWEENEY TODD are unpaid.
