HOLD: Sweeney Todd week seven

This week, the cast and crew of “Sweeney Todd” continued to put the finishing touches on the whole show, doing costume fittings, full run-throughs and integration of props.

With three weeks left until the curtain rises, the “Sweeney Todd” cast and crew are feeling the pressure as they get down to the wire.

In this past week of rehearsals, the cast continued to block, clean and run parts of the show.

Freshman Amelia Probst believes that, although the next few weeks of rehearsal will be stressful, the work will all be worth it in the end.

“A lot of work goes into any show,” she said. “But when it’s a large production like ‘Sweeney,’ you know what you’re getting yourself into. These next few weeks are the most stressful, but also the most fun. We get to see all of our hard work pay off, and get to see the show come to life.”

Backstage, the crew of “Sweeney Todd” is rushing towards the finish line. As costumes get tried on and props get built, the show begins to come to life.

Senior Max Sandoval, who is in charge of Set and Props, is ready to see how the actors start working with the props.

“Over the past couple of weeks, we have been preparing numerous props for the actors to use,” Sandoval said. “My crew has worked very hard perfecting everything, but of course, there’s always a fear that things will get broken, which can be stressful on us, and put pressure on the actors.”

In the weeks to come, the cast and crew will continue their hard work and begin the final steps towards showtime. 

“It’s the stress and hard work that make the difference between a show and a production,” Probst said.
