Sweeney Todd - The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
in the role of Pirelli
From the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center website -
"This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the National Puppetry Conference, creating contemporary works of theater that defy imagination and confound expectations. Conference participants collaborate with nationally and internationally renowned puppet artists to push the boundaries of puppetry and challenge themselves and their audiences."
And here's a little info on the ambitious project I'll be undertaking...
Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Participants will be developing selected scenes from the Stephen Sondheim thriller musical Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street as proof of concept for a fully realized production of the musical using life-sized puppets to portray the primary characters. At the end of the week the participants will perform the scenes. The puppets will be a similar style to the puppets used in Grueneberger’s production of Man of La Mancha. (See video clips of that production here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMqQpSZKnP8).
The Conference will be holding public performances at the
Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center - Waterford, CT
June 17 & 18th @7pm
