THEATRE company bosses need boys to sign up to perform in a chilling gothic musical.

Stretch Youth Theatre, based at the One With Grace (OWG) community centre in Hawley Road, Dartford, is staging Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street on August 21 and 22.

Artistic director Richard Gregg said they have cast all the female roles but still need young men, aged 14 to 19, to fill some of the male roles.

Mr Gregg said: "Sondheim's shows are complex, clever but amazingly rewarding to perform. Sweeney is not just a blood and guts musical, it looks at the whole concept of revenge and how it so readily turns in on itself to destroy us.

"We love taking on a challenge and this will certainly be that. We believe that young people will rise to a challenge and show us what they really can achieve."

Applicants should be available for rehearsals from August 17 to 21 and for performances on August 21 and 22.

The cost for the week is £50 and rehearsals and performances will take place at the OWG centre.

Those wishing to take part should call Stretch on 01322 620649 or e-mail info@Stretch
