VIDEO: South London Youth Theatre auditions for Sweeney Todd
We announced a couple of weeks ago that The Stephen Sondheim Society was funding four places on the upcoming 10-day intensive workshop of Sweeney Todd by South London Youth Theatre (SLYT).
We were invited to the auditions, and decided to surprise the kids by bringing along Peter Polycarpou, who of course played the role of the Beadle in the outstanding Chichester and Adelphi productions a few years ago.
Here, the young hopefuls are put through their paces by Musical Director Joe Hood, under the watchful eye of SLYT's Artistic Director Spencer James. Thanks to all those who took part, and particularly to those who talked on camera to the Society about their love for this Youth Theatre group.
The full-scale SLYT production, with band, will be staged twice on Saturday 18th August – find out more here.
