It’s not often a high school drama troupe tackles “Sweeney Todd.”
It’s even rarer for a high school orchestra to include a harp.
But the curtain goes up tonight at Staples on “Sweeney Todd.” And there in the Players’ pit is junior Nicole Mathias, playing that beautiful — but exceedingly difficult — instrument.
Nicole’s father Mark attached a webcam to her harp, for last night’s dress rehearsal. Click below to hear “Not While I’m Around” — and see a view of a show no one ever gets.
Plus Nicole’s great, proud smile at the end.
