A famously ghoulish musical performed by a school in New Zealand has accidentally offered real-life horror on stage.

During the opening night performance of Sweeney Todd at a school in Auckland, New Zealand, two boys received neck wounds, and were taken to hospital, one was seriously injured, the other moderately.

The musical features a barber who murders his customers by slitting their throats and selling their remains to a pie shop.

The incident happened on  Wednesday evening (NZ time), but both victims of the show are now in a stable condition, New Zealand media reports.

The school that put on the show told TVNZ what happened was “unfortunate and isolated incident".

The mishap was due to a razor wrapped in duct tape and paper, and was used for a throat-slitting scene.

A government body, Worksafe New Zealand, was investigating the incident, and the police had visited the school this week.
