ABOUT THE SHOW

The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names "Audrey II" - after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II's out of this world origins and intent towards global domination!

 

CAST NEEDS

*All ethnicities are encouraged to audition.

 

Seymour Krelborn

An insecure, put-upon florist's clerk and eventual hero. He is a genuine, well-meaning man who is taken for granted because of his clumsy ways and poor social skills.

Gender: male

Age: 25 to 35

Vocal range top: G4

Vocal range bottom: A2

 

Audrey

Bleached-blond, Billie-Dawn-like, secret love of Seymour's life. She has poor self-worth and education, but incredibly good looks and a sweet and vulnerable demeanor.

Gender: female

Age: 25 to 35

Vocal range top: D5

Vocal range bottom: G#3

 

Mr. Mushnik

The seasoned owner of the failing East Side flower shop and Seymour's nosy boss. He is profit-driven, greedy, and manipulative.

Gender: male

Age: 55 to 65

Vocal range top: F4

Vocal range bottom: G2

 

Orin Scrivello

An egotistical dentist with a passion for leather and sadistic tendencies. Audrey's abusive boyfriend, who is targeted by Seymour.

Gender: male

Age: 30 to 40

Vocal range top: G4

Vocal range bottom: G2

 

The Plant (Audrey II)

Puppet. An anthropomorphic cross between a Venus flytrap and an avocado, the plant has an appetite for human flesh that is appeased by Seymour. Puppeteer potentially doubles as other sizes of the plant, as well as other ensemble roles.

 

Voice Of The Plant

An actor/vocalist located offstage. The voice is that of a conniving, street-smart 'villain.' A funky Rhythm and Blues voice is best.  Please note that we are very interested in casting a female as the voice of Audrey II, but both men and women are encouraged to audition.

Gender: female

Age: 20 to 50

Vocal range top: G4

Vocal range bottom: G2
