The college cancelled the remaining scheduled musical performances of Sweeney Todd – The Demon Barber of Fleet Street last week after two students’ throats were cut. The announcement followed an incident on opening night in which two teens’ were injured live on stage on Wednesday night. Head of College, Steve Cole, said the college reluctantly decided to cancel its annual school production. “We are disappointed having to do this but have decided that the play should not proceed while investigation into what happened continues.” The final show was to have been on Saturday. Mr Cole said last week after the boys, both 16, whose necks were cut with a prop razor were doing well. The school has not responded to queries regarding an update. He said last week the “unfortunate” incident happened halfway through the performance’s second act. The prop was a razor which had been blunted and wrapped in several protective layers, Mr Cole said. “It’s normal for Sweeney Todd to have such an instrument [and it] clearly had been checked many, many times. It has been bound and cellophaned and all sorts of things. It had been blunted and had been through all sorts of health and safety checks. It was a very unfortunate mistake,” he told the radio station. The scene had been performed “many times” since January including eight dress rehearsals where the prop was used, Mr Cole said. The stage performance accident – said to have occurred at around 9pm – ended with two boys receiving cuts to the neck. Media reported one of the boys was seriously injured and the other moderately injured and were taken to Auckland City Hospital. Mr Cole said in a media statement earlier: “We are very concerned about the accident at our school play last night and we are investigating the causes of this. “We are pleased that both boys are in a stable condition and have been talking with both their families. “Our priority is to support the boys and their families, along with the rest of the cast and crew.” InvestIgatIon School looking into throat cuts Johnny Depp who stars in the movie Sweeney Todd – The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.
