The Fleet Street Collective of Landless Theatre Company is seeking additional band members for an East Coast Concert Tour of SWEENEY TODD [Prog Metal Version]: guitar (7 String, 6 String, and Bass), keyboards, and drums. Strong literacy, technique, and commitment are essential. Players with musical theatre skills may have additional vocal/acting performance opportunities in the show.
In 2015, the late Stephen Sondheim gave Landless Theatre Company exclusive permission to arrange the first and only Metal orchestration of SWEENEY TODD THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET. The Fleet Street Collective is an International band of arrangers and musicians assembled to adapt the metal score that was approved by Mr. Sondheim himself, and produced at Warehouse Theater and Atlas Performing Arts Center in Washington, DC. The production earned three Helen Hayes Award Nominations for Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Director, and Outstanding Music Director.
Landless is thrilled to remount a long anticipated concert tour of Sweeney Todd [Prog Metal Version]. The band will rehearse and record an album at our studio in Frederick, MD, from January-March, 2023, culminating in a March workshop production of the show at Frederick’s New Spire Arts Stages. Weekend tour dates will be scheduled from July 2023-August 2024. Compensation plus travel expenses paid.
To apply: send an email of interest with link to demos to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be interviewing until all positions are filled.
