Two boys had to be rushed to the hospital after incurring neck wounds during the opening night performance of Sweeney Todd show in New Zealand.
The musical has a barber in which he kills his customers by chopping off their throats and then sells their remains to a pie shop.
One of the boys who are characters in the musical got hurt seriously but Auckland Hospital said they are all stable.
Saint Kentigern College stated that the occurrence of events has distressed it.
The head of the private college, Steve Cole told TVNZ, that it was an “unfortunate and isolated incident” involving “a prop that was covered in all sorts of duct tape and silver paper.”
He said that the razor has been used in numerous times in rehearsals and that its edges are not sharp.
Thursday’s performance has been postponed by the school and it informed that the boys will be discharged by Thursday.
“Plays and performances are a big part of all school life” it said in an earlier statement.
“We are also very focused on helping other cast and crew members, along with the wider school community and have offered all students counselling.”
The incident is under police investigation but they have said that they have classified it as an accident.
“It’s not a criminal inquiry. In this instance the play is not the reality,” said the police spokesman, according to local media.
