Full Character Breakdown

You’ll scream and scream again…with laughter! One of the all-time great spoofs of classic horror films set to a musical score that will have you humming your way out of the Playhouse. Songs include Little Shop of Horrors, Somewhere That’s Green, Feed Me!, Suddenly Seymour and more!

Will cast ONLY THREE of the following roles under AEA contracts: Seymour, Mushnik, Audrey, Plant Voice OR perhaps one of the three girls (Crystal, Ronnette, Chiffon).

Seymour Krelborn
Bari-tenor A2 –G4, mid-20s. An insecure, naïve, put-upon, florist’s clerk and eventual hero. He’s a genuine, sweet, well-meaning little man who is taken for granted because of his clumsy ways and poor social skills. Excellent singer/actor with good comic timing. Starring role.

Mr. Mushnik
Bari-tenor G2-F4, 55-65. The seasoned owner of the failing East Side Flower Shop and Seymour and Audrey’s nosy boss. Profit-driven, greedy and manipulative with a middle class New York accent. He seldom smiles but often sweats. Excellent actor/singer with good comic timing. Featured role.

Voice of the Plant
R & B Baritone G-2-G4, 20-50. Actor/Vocalist located offstage. The voice is that of a conniving, street-smart “villain.” A funky Rhythm and Blues sound. Excellent singer with great range and ability to riff and lip-sync to movements of the Audrey Two puppet’s movements. African-American. Leading role.

Audrey
Belt G3 – D5, mid-late 20s. The quintessential dumb bleached blonde with incredible good looks and figure and a sweet and vulnerable demeanor. If you took classic blonde characters or actresses like Billie Dawn in Born Yesterday, Judy Holliday (who played her), Carol Channing, Marilyn Monroe and a young Goldie Hawn, removed their education and self-esteem, dressed them in spiked heels and a low-cut black dress, and then shook them up in a test tube to extract their sweetness and vulnerability – that would be Audrey. Excellent singer/actress with great belt voice and comic timing. Starring role.

Crystal, Ronnette, Chiffon
Ab3-F5, mid-20s. As their names suggest are a take-off on the girl groups of the late 1950’s and early 1960’s like The Supremes, The Ronnettes, The Chiffons, Shangri-las, etc. with all the harmonies and moves of their lead singers and backups. They are three African-American street urchins who function as participants in the action and as a kind of “Greek Chorus” outside it. Young, hip and smart, they are the only people in the whole cast who really know what’s going on. In their capacity as a “Greek Chorus” they occasionally sing directly to the audience and often with a “secret-smile” that says “we know something you don’t know!” Excellent singers who move well. All require voices with great range and power and ability to do riffs in the style of the period. African American. Featured Roles.
