Casa Mañana’s Apprentice Program is for the most dedicated young performers ages 14-19 in the D-FW area who aspire to careers in the theatre. The young actors who audition and are accepted have the unique opportunity to advance their professional training by performing in an all-youth production of a musical backed by the full resources of Casa Mañana. Thanks to generous donors who underwrite the program, there is no participation fee. Now in its ninth year, participants in our Apprentice Program have attended or been accepted to such prestigious universities and training programs as Yale University, Carnegie Mellon University, Webster University, Otterbein University, The Neighborhood Playhouse in NYC, and Baldwin Wallace University.

An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which, he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett’s luck sharply shifts when Todd’s thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up… and the carnage has only just begun! Stephen Sondheim’s and Hugh Wheeler’s Sweeney Todd, is a tasty, thrilling, theatrical treat that will simultaneously shock, awe and delight.
This show is suitable for mature audiences.
