Character Breakdown: Parts will be cast blind of race and age.

Sweeney Todd – (open to anyone over the age of 18). Once a kind, loving and energetic young man, now broken and seeking revenge. A slow descent to complete darkness. Brooding and intense. BARITONE (High Note F4 Low G Sharp 2).

Mrs Lovett – (open to anyone over the age of 18). Manipulative and without conscience. She sets the stage of Sweeney’s downfall. Amoral. Bold. Provacteur. Also provides the comic relief. Cockney. ALTO (High Note E5 Low F Sharp 3)

Anthony – (open to anyone over the age of 16). Honest, idealistic, kind, handsome, trusting. Naive. Could be seen as a reflection of what Sweeney was like before he got sent away. TENOR (High Note F Sharp 4 Low C3)

Johanna – (open to anyone over the age of 16). Beautiful and charming. Kept prisoner by the Judge desperately dreaming of freedom. Sweeney’s child. SOPRANO (High Note A sharp 5 Low C4 – Middle C)

Toby – (either a child performer under 16 or a young adult – would like to see options for both, this part may be cast as two actors performing alternate shows). Young, innocent but strong willed and strong minded. Fearless. Bright. Orphaned. Sweet and kind. TENOR (High Note G4 Low B2 – transposed perhaps to fit age/range cast)

Judge – (older 30+). Ruthless. Cruel. A well respected judge on the outside, on the inside a wicked and evil man. Should have an intimidating presence. Taller the better. BARITONE (High Note F4 Low B2)

Pirelli – (open to anyone over the age of 18). Charming. A showman. Pretends to be Italian really he is Irish. Well dressed. Smart. Proud. Deceptive. TENOR (High Note F Sharp 4 Low G Sharp 2)

The Beadle – (open to anyone over the age of 18). Immoral. Lecherous. The Judge’s loyal servant. Repulsive. TENOR (TBC)

Chorus – (16+) 10-15 spaces for chorus parts. Demanding vocally and used frequently throughout the entire performance. Looking for a good vocal balance.
